Lumbar decompression/laminectomy is a surgery designed to eliminate pain caused by pinched nerve roots in the spine. This procedure is typically used to treat spinal stenosis and other conditions that cause nerve pressure.
Laminectomy involves removing portions of the bone and disc that are pressing the nerve root and causing pain. Once lumbar decompression is complete, you can experience a range of benefits that include:
Increased activity level
How it Works
Lumbar decompression/laminectomy relieves nerve pressure by following this simple procedure:
- An incision is made in the midline of the back
- The lamina is removed to allow access to the nerve roots
- Small portions of bone are removed to clear room for the nerve roots and relieve pressure
