In brief: Yes and no

Yes, you can replace a disc in your neck and a vertebrae in your back is the simple answer to your question.
That being said, those are surgical procedures that are not traditionally done for osteoporosis. I would encourage you to be seen by a reputable spine surgeon who can discuss the operative and nonoperative options in your case.
