Vertebroplasty is an outpatient procedure for stabilizing compression fractures in the spine. Bone cement is injected into back bones (vertebrae) that have cracked or broken, often because of osteoporosis. The cement hardens, stabilizing the fractures and supporting your spine.
The spine surgeons at Central New York Brain and Spine Neurosurgery specialize in performing vertebroplasty procedures.
