I wrote my project on kyphosis and the surgical procedure to correct it: kyphoplasty. This is a subject that is very dear to me as my dad often did this procedure to help people. In short, kyphosis is when a vertebrae collapses (thus causing the patient to have a “hunchback”) and kyphoplasty is when the surgeon inserts a “balloon” into the vertebrae to act as the part of the vertebrae that collapsed, reversing the damage and straightening the spine.
Please note: the site wouldn’t let me insert my video due to security reasons (either that or I’m just stupid technology-wise) so here are a couple links so access my video:
