Does anyone have experience with verterboplasty?

My father has cancer as well as osteoporosis.
It was suggested that he get verterbroplasty (I think in the lumbar spine).

Any personal experiences and reviews would be greatly appreciated.

I only have read about this. The doctors (all two) that I querried about it weren't all that favaroble about it, but then it again it is a procedure they do not perform so they have no in$entive to support it.It is also my understanding that it is limited to one or two vertabrae and so for me the point was moot.
