Laminectomy surgery

Laminectomy surgery helps ease pressure on your spinal cord or the nerve roots that may have been caused by injury, a herniated disk or other factors

What’s involved in a laminectomy?

A laminectomy removes a small portion of the bone over the nerve root and/or disc material from under the nerve root to relieve neural impingement and give it more space. This procedure treats spinal stenosis (cervical, lumbar and rarely thoracic), relieving the pressure on the nerves.
