Vertebroplasty

Vertebroplasty surgery is considered in most cases to be a minimally invasive surgical procedure due to the duration and non-incision method of the operation. A small puncture in the patient’s skin is the first step approach, rather than an open incision. A small biopsy needle is then inserted through the small puncture in order to locate the fractured vertebrae area. The surgeon will then inject acrylic bone cement to stabilize and cast the fractured vertebrae. The cement will quickly harden stabilizing the bone and the puncture is then bandaged.
