check the web for this new procedure that is being done at University of Virginia and the Mayo Clinic. It involves injecting bone cement into the vertebrae where compression fracture exists, stabilizing the fracture and relieving the pain. I would like to know where else this is being done-in Nashville or Memphis? and how I can go about finding out if my Mother can qualify for this procedure?
