Laminectomy

About

A Laminectomy is a surgical procedure in which the surgeon removes a portion of the bony arch, or lamina, on the dorsal surface of a vertebra, which is one of the bones that make up the human spinal column. It is done to relieve back pain caused by neural impingement/compression that can result from spinal stenosis (narrowing). The surgery involves removing a small portion of the bone and/or disc material around the nerve root to allow more space for better healing.A laminectomy is performed with the patient under general anesthesia. The procedure removes bones and damaged disks, and makes more room for your spinal nerve and column.The procedure can take pressure off your spinal nerves or spinal column. An expert doctor on the subject enhances the favourable outcome of the procedure.
