Laminectomy, Here's What You Need to Know

Laminectomy is a type of surgery that aims to remove the lamina, which is the very back of the spinal arch, in order to relieve pressure on the nerves, due to abnormal bone structure. Abnormalities in the structure of the spine can cause pressure on the spinal cord tissue which can cause nerve disorders. Laminectomy is done by removing the lamina, so that the spinal canal (the place where there are spinal nerves) becomes wider. Spinal cord compression is often caused by narrowing of the spinal cord due to changes in the shape of the spine. This compression of the spinal cord can cause pain, stiffness, and weakness in the arms, legs, or both. In addition to changes in bone shape, pressure on the spinal nerves can also be caused by protrusion of the bone bearing (herniated disk). Laminectomy is performed on a person if the symptoms caused by suppressing the spinal nerves have disrupted daily activities, and if other treatments have not been effective in alleviating complaints in pati
