I was just learning a bit about a relatively new procedure to correct vertebral fractures called vertebroplasty. It's an outpatient procedure that essentially cements the broken bones of the spinal column back together. Although it's been practiced in U.S. for more than 10 years, it recently seems to be gaining traction and I was wondering if anyone in this forum had done it or knew anyone personally who tried it. I would be grateful to learn of your experiences.
