Vertebral Augmentation


Vertebral augmentation is a minimally invasive, outpatient procedure used to treat the pain associated with spinal compression fractures caused by osteoporosis, metastatic tumors or trauma. During vertebral augmentation, the collapsed vertebra is stabilized with specially formulated acrylic bone cement. In addition to providing pain relief, vertebral augmentation can prevent further collapse of the vertebra, height loss and spine curvature.
