Kyphoplasty is a highly effective minimally invasive treatment for symptomatic (painful) vertebral compression fractures occurring as a result of osteoporosis or malignancy. Using imaging guidance, balloons (bone tamps) are introduced into the affected bones and medical-grade bone cement is injected for fracture stabilization and pain relief.
