Minimally invasive procedure used to treat pain in the bones, joints, and muscles. This procedure involves injecting a special type of cement into the affected area. The cement hardens and forms a support structure that helps to stabilize the bone and relieve pain.
This technique involves inserting polymethylmethacrylate into the bone of the collapsed vertebra with the needle and syringe under the guidance of X-ray. This technique is performed to stabilize the fracture and prevent further collapse.
In this procedure, a large needle is introduced into the spine with a balloon called a bone tamp and inflated until it expands to the desired height. The space created is then filled with or injected with orthopaedic cement called polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA).
This procedure restores the height of the vertebrae and reduces the deformity.
In this procedure, cement is introduced into the sacral bone at the base of the spine to treat a compression fracture. This procedure reduces pain and improves the stability of the sacrum, which is part of the pelvic structure.
