Laminectomy Spine Surgery Can Relieve Your Pain

Doctors use Advanced Surgical Institute to perform minimally invasive Laminectomies. A Laminectomy is a spine surgery to remove the thin plate of bone, or lamina, that covers the spinal cord in each of your vertebra.

Vertebrae can pinch your spinal cord and nerve due to:

  • Narrowing of the spinal canal (spinal stenosis),
  • Bony spurs caused by arthritis, or
  • A herniated spinal disk.

A Laminectomy spine surgery enlarges the spinal canal to relieve the pressure on the nerves and spinal cord, easing your pain.

Our center can perform laminectomies in the cervical (neck) and lumbar (lower back) regions of your spine. With our minimally invasive techniques for laminectomies:

  • The surgery is done through several small incisions
  • Your doctor removes lamina bone and bone spurs to relieve pressure on the affected nerve(s).
  • If a herniated disk is present, your doctor may remove it.

Laminectomy patients are usually able to walk immediately after spine surgery. You will be able to recover in the comfort of your own home.
