Kyphoplasty is used to treat compression fractures in the spine, which can be caused by:

  • Trauma
  • Osteoporosis
  • Bone weakening
  • Bone disease

To relieve the severe back pain caused by compression fractures, a minimally invasive kyphoplasty is done by inflating a small balloon into the affected bone. The balloon is then filled with cement to create space and relieve the compression.
