While non-surgical pain management can help relieve the pain caused by spinal fracture, it doesn’t repair the fractured vertebra or address spinal deformity. In fact, treatment with non-surgical pain management alone could allow the bone to heal in a deformed state.
KYPHON® Balloon Kyphoplasty offers a minimally invasive procedure for repairing vertebral compression fractures in the spine caused by osteoporosis or cancer. The procedure utilizes balloons designed to restore the vertebral body height. Bone cement is inserted into the vertebral body to stabilize the fracture.
