What is a lumbar laminectomy?
Lumbar laminectomy is a surgical procedure most often performed to treat leg pain caused by pressure on the spinal cord (or nerve) from herniated discs, spinal stenosis and other related conditions.
Stenosis occurs as people age when the ligaments of the spine thicken and harden, discs bulge, bones and joints enlarge, and body spurs (osteophytes) form. Spondylolisthesis (the slipping of one vertebra onto another) can also lead to compression of the vertebral discs.
The goal of a laminectomy is to relieve pressure on the spinal cord or nerve by widening the spinal canal. This is done by removing or trimming the lamina (roof) of the vertebrae to create more room for the nerves. This may be done with or without fusing vertebrae or removing part of a disc. Various devices, such as screws or rods, may be used to obtain a solid fusion and support unstable areas of the spine.
How does the spine work?
The spine helps the body to function and is made up of two parts: the spinal column and the spinal cord. Find out more about how the spine works here.
