WHAT IS LUMBAR LAMINECTOMY SURGERY?
Lumbar laminectomy surgery is a very common procedure that involves the removal of the lamina bone with the goal of relieving pressure on the spinal cord or nerves. Patients are placed under general anesthesia, lie face down on a special surgical bed, and the procedure is performed through a small incision on the back of the spine. Removing the lamina in lumbar laminectomy surgery allows more room for the spinal cord and nerves, relieving abnormal pressure and alleviating the above symptoms.
