Lumbar laminectomy surgery is being done for treating the symptoms of central spinal stenosis or narrowing of the spina canal. This surgery removes all or posterior part of the vertebra or provide more space for the compressed spinal cord or nerve roots.

Lumbar laminectomy is done to relieve pressure on spinal nerve treats problems related to disc or to remove tumor from spine. One of the most common reason for going for  laminectomy is the presence of herniated disc in the spine. The disk may be damaged or displaced because of presence of injury or some wear and tear.

Lumbar laminectomy takes around two to three hours to complete. You will be in hospital for 3 days after surgery.

Lumbar laminectomy is being done by an orthopaedic surgeon.

The patient is positioned in downward direction on the operating table, incisions are being made depending on the number of levels to be treated. In single level laminectomy only a small incision is needed while in multilevel laminectomy 3-4 inch incision is needed.  In traditional surgery a retractor is needed to spread the muscles apart to expose vertebras. Then a portion of lamina is removed to uncover the elastic like ligament. Next, the surgeon cuts an opening in the to reach the spinal canal. Once the compressed nerve can be seen, the cause of nerve compression can be identified. The surgeon gently retracts the nerve, and the source of the compression is removed—the pressure on the spinal nerve or nerve components is relieved.
