In brief: Yes

I have performed many.
Usually done for acute compression fractures less than 6- 8 weeks old and cancer involving the vertebral body which is very painful.

In brief: Yes

Vertebroplatsy is one of the modes of treatment but it is not for everyone and should be done for very specific reasons.
