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:
Incision and Exposure:
An incision is made over the affected lumbar vertebrae to expose the lamina.
The lamina is partially or completely removed, creating more space within the spinal canal.
If necessary, additional bone may be removed from the neural foramen to relieve nerve compression.
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.
