Vertebral body replacement

In cases of severe vertebral body fractures caused by osteoporosis, trauma or tumours, patients can often develop instability and narrowing of the entire spinal canal, with pain occurring with almost every movement.

To relieve the spinal canal, we remove the entire vertebral body and replace it with titanium. If the fracture is located in the thoracic spine, the procedure is performed through the lateral rib cage.
