Kyphoplasty surgery (1 level) is a surgical procedure where special cement is injected into the vertebrae — with the additional step of creating space for the treatment with a balloon-like device (balloon vertebroplasty). Kyphoplasty can restore a damaged vertebra's height and may also relieve pain. This procedure is performed on 1 vertebral level.
