Operative Spine – Laminectomy

In this procedure surgeons remove a portion of the bone or disc material near the nerve root to create, decompress, and alleviate neural impingement. Laminectomy is different than a microdiscectomy because it requires a longer incision and disruption to the muscles. This procedure is commonly used to treat spinal stenosis.
