Lumbar Laminectomy

Back pain is a common ailment for most people. Whether it’s pain from an aching arthritic joint or the occasional flare-up from “overdoing it,” back pain typically comes and goes. There is a type of back pain, however, caused by a narrowing of the spaces within your spine that’s persistent. Spinal pain caused by pressure on the nerves can be both unnerving and debilitating. Left undiagnosed and untreated, it can lead to problems that interfere with normal daily activities. Lumbar laminectomy surgery may be needed to obtain relief. For the best possible care and treatment, the place to start is Advanced Orthopedics in Denver, Parker, and Aurora, Colorado. Nerve pain can get worse and worse.

OVERVIEW

A laminectomy is one of the most common back surgeries. Also called open decompression, a lumbar laminectomy is a surgical procedure performed to enlarge the spinal canal and treat the symptoms of narrowing of the spine to provide more space for the compressed spinal cord and/or nerve roots. A lumbar laminectomy involves the removal of the lamina. the back portion of a spinal bone in the lower back.
