Lumbar Laminectomy

Lumbar Laminectomy at Fitzwilliam Hospital

Lumbar laminectomy for spinal stenosis is a type of decompression surgery that gives squashed spinal nerves in your lower back more space. It removes vertebral bones that are narrowing your spinal column and compressing the spinal nerve roots often due to age-related changes of spinal stenosis.

Spinal stenosis is the narrowing of part of your spinal column due to bone or other tissue overgrowth or a herniated disc. 

Lumbar laminectomy is commonly performed at most of our Ramsay hospitals

We are pleased to work alongside experienced and proficient professional spinal surgeons who regularly carry out lumbar laminectomy to reduce the symptoms of spinal problems such as spinal stenosis. They understand their patients are experiencing chronic pain that is impacting on their quality of life and they aim to help resolve this as quickly as possible. Our skilled and practised physiotherapy team will offer the individual advice and exercise program you need to build your strength and agility postoperatively.
