Re: Now Daryl Dad....Today in the Garden

It's a fairly new procedure called Kyphoplasty. A small hole is drilled through the broken vertebra and a balloon inserted. The balloon is expanded to restore the bone to its original configuration and then withdrawn. After that, a special "cement" (polymethylmethacrylate ) fills in the space.
