It is a minimally invasive, safe and effective technique performed by a specialized orthopedic spine surgeon for the treatment of spinal fractures in older people.

Kyphoplasty is percutaneous, ie it is performed without surgical incisions and completely eliminates the pain almost immediately or in a very short time.

At the same time it helps the patient return to the normal rhythm of his daily life.

It is suitable for the cases of older patients suffering from severe pain after a recent vertebral fracture.


Vertebroplasty is a radiologically guided non-surgical microsurgery method that aims to strengthen the osteoporotic body of the fractured vertebra.

It helps increase the patient’s daily functions, allowing him to return to work and protecting him from further deterioration of the fracture he has suffered.
