What is Laminectomy?

Laminectomy is a form of back surgery that is designed to relieve pain associated with spinal stenosis. Some symptoms of spinal stenosis include the inability to control your bowels or bladder and numbness that inhibits your ability to stand or walk. Spinal stenosis involves bony growths in your spinal canal that limit the amount of space your spinal cord and nerves have, thereby impeding their healthy function. Spinal stenosis leaves your legs and your arms weak and can often result in incontinence.

Sacrum Pain that affects the sacroiliac (SI) joint in the spine

Do You Need a Pain Doctor?

Spinal stenosis is a condition that is caused by:

  • Bony Growths in the Spinal Canal
  • A Shrinkage of Spinal Discs
  • In Older Adults, Spinal Arthritis
  • Congenital Defects of the Spine
  • Tumors
  • A Herniated Disc
  • Dwarfism

A laminectomy may be the best way to relieve the pain and pressure caused by spinal stenosis. This is a surgical procedure where the lamia, or the bone spurs that are negatively affecting your spinal cord, are removed.

What Are the Symptoms of Spinal Stenosis?

When your spinal cord is affected, some of the symptoms you may experience include extreme pain in your back, your arms and legs become weak, and you have difficulty controlling your bowels. It can be a challenge to even stand or walk.

Although a laminectomy has been proven to be beneficial for individuals with spinal stenosis, there are risks, including the chance that your spinal cord or nerves might get damaged during the operation. There is a chance of developing infection in vertebral bones as well as recurring back pain.
