Lumbar Laminotomy Overview:
Surgical procedure involving the removal of a small portion of the vertebral bone (lamina) in the lumbar spine.
Similar to laminectomy but involves a more targeted and less extensive removal of bone.
Indications for Lumbar Laminotomy:
Lumbar spinal stenosis or disc herniation causing nerve compression.
Focused decompression of specific nerve roots while preserving spinal stability.
Procedure and Techniques:
Incision and Exposure:
An incision is made over the affected lumbar vertebrae to expose the targeted area.
A small portion of the lamina is removed, creating space for nerve decompression.
Additional bone may be removed from the neural foramen if needed to relieve nerve compression.
In some cases, spinal fusion may be considered to stabilize the spine, depending on the extent of bone removal.
Recovery and Rehabilitation:
Postoperative immobilization with a lumbar brace may or may not be required.
Physical therapy to promote spine flexibility and strength.
Gradual return to normal activities under the guidance of healthcare professionals.
