What is Laminectomy?
Laminectomy is a surgical procedure to remove the portion of the lamina (roof) of the spinal bone. It helps to relieve the pain associated with narrowing of spinal column. The procedure removes bones and damaged disks and makes space for spinal nerves and column.
In a traditional laminectomy the incision made is large and the overlying muscles must be cut.
In a minimal invasive technique very tiny incisions are made, the back muscles are moved aside and the lamina is removed.
