  • The procedure is performed by consultant Dr Nick Higgins
  • It is a minimally-invasive technique which is suitable for patients of all ages
  • Patients are admitted as a daycase - you may go home the same day
  • You may experience immediate restoration of height
  • Treatment can reduce the risk of further spinal fractures
