Lumbar Decompression / Laminectomy
Lumbar decompression/laminectomy is a surgery option designed to eliminate pain caused by pinched nerve roots in the spine. This procedure is usually for treating spinal stenosis and other conditions that cause nerve pressure, and it involves removing portions of the bone and disc that are pressing the nerve root and causing your pain. Once room is cleared for your nerve root, you can experience a range of benefits that include:
- Less pain
- Improved mobility
- Ability to handle increased activity level
