In brief: There is no surgery

For osteoporosis, but there are surgery for its complication two surgical treatments, vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty, may relieve pain from spinal compression fractures resulting from osteoporosis.
In these procedures, a surgeon injects bone cement through a needle into the crushed spinal bones (vertebrae). If you experience a hip fracture because of osteoporosis, you will need surgery to fix it.
