Vertebroplasty is a procedure in which medical grade cement is injected into a fractured vertebra. The main reason a vertebroplasty is performed is to treat a fractured vertebra in the spine that is causing pain and reduced function. Not all fractured vertebra are candidates for vertebroplasty however. This procedure is performed under fluoroscopic guidance (x-ray) to ensure safe, proper placement.
