Balloon Kyphoplasty is a minimally invasive treatment that can repair Vertebral Compression Fractures (VCFs) caused by primary or secondary (e.g. steroid-induced) osteoporosis, cancer, or benign lesions. Orthopedic balloons are used in an attempt to elevate the bone fragments of the fractured vertebra and return them to the correct position. Performed under local or general anesthesia, the procedure typically takes less than an hour and may require an overnight hospital stay.
