Decompression Laminectomy

  • What is Decompression Laminectomy?

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

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