Decompression Laminectomy

  • What is Decompression Laminectomy?

    Laminectomy is a surgical procedure to reduce the pressure on the spinal cord or spinal nerve roots caused by spinal stenosis. Spinal stenosis is the narrowing of the spinal canal, this puts pressure on the spinal cord, which is filled with nerves, and leads to pain, numbness, or weakness in the legs, back, neck and arms.

  • Spinal laminectomy reduces the symptoms in the parts of your body that are affected by pressure in your spine, and helps you to return to your normal activities. The procedure involves surgery on your back to remove the bone and/or tissue that is putting the pressure on your spine. Laminectomy can also be used to treat spinal injuries, herniated discs (slipped discs) and spinal tumours.
