What is laminectomy?

Lamina is a bone from the vertebrae and forms a layer to protect the spinal cord. Pressure on the spinal cord or nerve roots can be due to 2 main reasons Disk herniation, Stenosis, the narrowing of the spinal canal due to the degenerative changes that occur with aging, a tumor in the spine, arthritis of the spine and a congenital defect. It is done when the pain is accompanied by symptoms of nerve damage, such as numbness or weakness in the arms or legs. Loss of bowel or bladder control from pressure in the cervical or lumbar spine also usually needs surgery.

• Patients with persistent numbness or weakness in the arms or legs • Patients with Loss of bowel or bladder control from pressure in the cervical or lumbar spine ruptured Achilles tendon

The surgeon takes a medical history and asks for ultrasound, X-rays, or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Patients should stop taking Aspirin, anti-inflammatory medicines and herbal supplements before the surgery, since these medicines increase the risk of bleeding. They should not eat or drink after midnight the night before the surgery.
