What is Vertebroplasty?

Vertebroplasty is an innovative procedure done by vertebroplasty specialists in Hyderabad that provides immediate pain relief in many cases by stabilizing and reinforcing fractured vertebrae. Vertebroplasty is an outpatient procedure. Involves intravenous sedation and local anesthetic. Vertebroplasty involves injecting the bone with a cement mixture to fuse the fragments, strengthen the vertebra and provide pain relief. Using image guidance, a hollow needle called a trocar is passed through the skin into the vertebral body for injection of the cement mixture into the vertebra.
