Vertebroplasty is a minimally invasive medical procedure used to treat compression fractures in the spine, particularly those caused by osteoporosis. During vertebroplasty, a special cement is injected into the fractured vertebra to stabilize and strengthen it.


  • Medical Evaluation: Before the procedure, you will undergo a medical evaluation, including imaging studies (X-rays, CT scans, or MRI) to identify the location and extent of the vertebral compression fracture.
  • Discussion with Healthcare Provider: Your healthcare provider will discuss the procedure with you, explain potential benefits and risks, and answer any questions you may have.

During the Procedure:

  • Positioning: You will likely lie face down on an X-ray table. The procedure is often performed under local anaesthesia to numb the skin and deeper tissues.
  • Fluoroscopy Guidance: Using fluoroscopy (real-time X-ray), the doctor will guide a needle into the fractured vertebra through a small incision in the skin.
  • Cement Injection: Once the needle is in the correct position, a special bone cement (usually polymethylmethacrylate) is injected into the fractured
    vertebra. The cement hardens quickly, providing stability to the vertebra.
  • Monitoring: Throughout the procedure, the healthcare team monitors the injection process to ensure the accurate placement of the cement.

After the Procedure:

  • Observation: After the injection, you may be observed for a short period in a recovery area to monitor for any immediate complications.
  • Pain Relief: Many patients experience pain relief shortly after the procedure due to the stabilization of the fractured vertebra.
  • Activity: You may be encouraged to resume normal activities gradually, but specific post-procedure instructions will be provided by your healthcare team.
