Lumbar Laminectomy

Lumbar Laminectomy at Rowley Hall Hospital

What is a lumbar laminectomy?

Lumbar laminectomy, also called open decompression, is spinal surgery that is performed to remove overgrown vertebral bone, called lamina, from a compressed nerve root so that it has more space and is no longer trapped. 

Sometimes, if you have a herniated disc, the herniated disc material is also removed from under the nerve root to help create the space it needs, known as discectomy. Spinal fusion or back fusion is another type of decompression surgery that may be performed at the same time if your spine needs strengthening or stabilising and, involves joining together two or more vertebrae.

Lumbar laminectomy aims to relieve symptoms of spinal stenosis such as chronic pain, numbness, and muscle weakness in your legs, buttocks, arms and neck.
