Decompression Laminectomy

  • What is a Decompression Laminectomy?

    Laminectomy is a surgical procedure to relieve pressure on the spinal cord or spinal nerve roots which is caused by spinal stenosis. The procedure involves surgery to the back to remove the bone and/or tissue that is putting pressure on the spine. Laminectomy can also be used to treat spinal injuries, herniated discs (slipped discs) and spinal tumours.

  • 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, and/or weakness in the legs, back, neck and arms. Spinal laminectomy relieves these symptoms and helps you to return to your normal activities.
