Decompression Laminectomy

Laminectomy is a surgical procedure that is carried out to alleviate pressure on the spinal cord or spinal nerve roots that is affected by spinal stenosis. The spinal canal is being narrowed by the Spinal stenosis which then puts an amount of pressure onto the spinal cord that is filled with nerves. Essentially, this causes numbness, pain, or weakness in your legs, back, neck, and arms.

This procedure requires surgery on your back to take out the bone and/or tissue that is affecting how much pressure is put onto the spine. Alternatively, Laminectomy is also another option to treat injuries to the spine, and herniated discs, also known as slipped discs and spinal tumours.
