Laminectomy Specialists

While our practice offers a variety of nonsurgical treatment plans, some conditions are best treated with surgery. When spinal compression becomes so severe that the patient’s nerves are pinched and they are suffering from neurological symptoms, removing their lamina may be the best approach.

Trust iRISE Spine and Joint to decompress your spine and give you the relief you need. Call us to get started: (888) 966-9750.

What Is a Laminectomy?

A laminectomy is a common procedure that aims to add more space in your spinal canal, thus relieving pressure. It’s commonly referred to as a decompression surgery because of the relief it provides to the spinal cord and nerves.

The surgery is performed by removing the lamina, a portion of your vertebral bone, to give your spine space to decompress. The lamina is the back part of the vertebra covering your spinal canal. Getting it removed is a serious surgery, but one our doctors perform regularly, producing positive results for our clients.

The procedure is not to be confused with a laminotomy, which is a partial removal of the lamina. Still, both procedures work for the same goal of relieving spinal compression.

What Causes the Pressure Buildups?

The growth of pressure is commonly attributed to overgrowths or bone spurs in the spinal canal, which is common among those with arthritis. However, it is not exclusive to individuals with arthritis, as it can also be a typical symptom of aging.

When Does a Patient Need a Laminectomy?

A laminectomy, along with our other surgical solutions, is reserved for only those circumstances in which other nonsurgical methods are ineffective or otherwise unsuitable for your condition. When the pain from these bone spurs causes unbearable pressure and consequential pain and weakness, a laminectomy is a common recommendation. Our doctors will look for the following indicators of worsening symptoms before suggesting a laminectomy, such as:

  • Failure of medication or physical therapy to treat your pain and symptoms
  • Weakness or numbness that makes standing and standard daily activities difficult
  • Loss of bowel or bladder control

Additionally, patients suffering from a herniated disc may require a laminectomy in order to access the affected spinal disc. Our doctors will advise you of the options available to you before pursuing surgery.

If you are experiencing serious spinal pain, contact iRISE Spine and Joint to review your treatment options.
