With x-ray guidance, the physician inserts a needle through the skin and back muscles into the bone, then, inflates a balloon to help the vertebra regain its normal shape. The surgeon will then inject a special type of cement into the vertebra’s space that was created by the balloon-like device. The needle is removed, with no stitches needed. This minimally invasive procedure will probably take an hour or less, depending if any additional vertebrae are treated it may last longer.

This procedure helps to straighten the spine, restore a damaged vertebra’s height and may also relieve pain.
