In brief: Absolutely

I have completed over 1000 such procedures since 2000, when the procedure was approved for the market by the fda.
It has been one of the most satisfying procedures for my patients in my practice.

In brief: Yes

I have performed the kyphoplasty procedure many times.
It is an excellent treatment option for osteoporotic compression fractures and for some pathologic fractures from metastatic disease and multiple myeloma. It is not indicated for the treatment of fractures in younger patients with normal bone health. Check out kyphon.Com.
