Injection When the needle is in place, the physician injects the bone cement. The cement fills the fractured spaces within the vertebra. A second injection may be needed to completely fill the bone. During the next hour, the cement will harden. It will strengthen and stabilize your spine.
End of Procedure When the procedure is complete, the needle is removed. You may be asked to lie on your back as the cement hardens. Your physician will give you instructions to aid your recovery.
