Vertebral Compression Fracture

Caused by osteoporosis, cancer, and trauma, pain from this type of spinal column fracture can be severe. If conservative treatments fail, vertebroplasty procedures can alleviate the pain immediately. Vertebroplasty procedures are done with minimal sedation. No open incisions is done on the skin. Specialized needles are placed into the vertebral bone under live X-ray and medical cement called PMMA is injected to "glue" the fragments of bone together. Once the PMMA restores the bone fragments, patients immediately feel pain relief.
