New Jersey's TOP Orthopaedic and Spine Center specializing in Non-Surgical Treatment of Spinal Fractures

Interspinous Process Decompression

Minimally Invasive, Non-surgical Procedures: Kyphoplasty and Vertebroplasty

Both of these minimally invasive, non-surgical procedures are used to treat severe spinal fractures that occur as a result of osteoporosis.


Kyphoplasty is the newer of the two treatments. It is a minimally invasive procedure that stabilizes the fracture, restores height and corrects deformity. It can alleviate up to 90% of the pain due to compression fractures.


Vertebroplasty is also designed to relieve the pain of compression fractures. Vertebroplasty, which means ‘fixing the vertebral body,’ relieves pain and also strengthens vertebrae that are weakened but not yet fractured.

How are Kyphoplasty and Vertebroplasty performed?

In both procedures, a cement-like material is injected directly into the weakened or fractured bone. The difference is that kyphoplasty makes use of a balloon to create the space before injecting the cement-like material. There is no bracing following either procedure, and most patients are able to make a relatively quick return to normal activity.
