Laminectomy is a surgical procedure that removes the back part of the vertebra (lamina) to decompress the spinal cord and spinal nerves. This procedure is meant for patients suffering from the symptoms of nerve compression because of boney outgrowths (bone spurs) in the vertebrae. The laminectomy procedure removes the lamina and the bone spurs, thus alleviating chronic pain. Brand Surgical Institute performs a highly personalized laminectomy using cutting-edge surgical techniques that ensure speedy recovery without complications.
What is a Laminectomy?
You are the ideal candidate for laminectomy if:
- You have severe chronic pain and the symptoms of nerve compression
- You have numbness and tingling sensations in various parts of the body
- You have muscle weakness and stability issues while standing
- You have symptoms of severe nerve radiculopathy, such as loss of bowel control
- Conservative and minimally invasive solutions haven’t offered the desired results
What is recovery like after laminectomy?
Brand Surgical Institute offers minimally invasive spine surgeries that can be completed on an outpatient basis, so you can return home the same day. Depending on your unique condition, you can resume work and light activities after a week or two. You should avoid strenuous workouts and heavy lifting for several weeks. Your surgeon will also recommend physical therapy to help you regain strength and mobility.
