Lumbar Laminectomy Overview:

  • Surgical procedure involving the removal of a portion of the vertebral bone (lamina) in the lumbar spine.

  • Performed to alleviate pressure on the spinal cord or nerves, particularly in cases of spinal stenosis.

Indications for Lumbar Laminectomy:

  • Lumbar spinal stenosis causing compression of the spinal cord or nerve roots.

  • Degenerative changes in the lumbar spine leading to narrowing of the spinal canal.

  • Persistent back and leg pain not responsive to conservative treatments.

Procedure and Techniques:

  1. Incision and Exposure:

    • An incision is made over the affected lumbar vertebrae to expose the lamina.

  2. Lamina Removal:

    • The lamina is partially or completely removed, creating more space within the spinal canal.

  3. Foraminotomy (Optional):

    • If necessary, additional bone may be removed from the neural foramen to relieve nerve compression.

  4. Stabilization (Optional):

    • In some cases, spinal fusion may be performed to stabilize the spine, especially if multiple laminae are removed.

Recovery and Rehabilitation:

  • Postoperative immobilization with a lumbar brace may be recommended.

  • Physical therapy to restore strength and flexibility.

  • Gradual return to normal activities under the guidance of healthcare professionals.
