What is Laminectomy? 
Laminectomy is a surgical procedure that involves the complete or partial removal of the lamina, commonly referred to as the vertebral bone, so as to relieve excess pressure from the spinal cord and the nerve roots. The procedure helps to ease symptoms triggered by a spinal injury, herniated disk, spinal stenosis or tumours (both malignant and benign). Laminectomy is usually recommended by doctors when other treatments fail to induce any significant improvement. 

Laminectomy may also be performed to extract bone spurs, which again, can put unnecessary pressure on the brain and spinal cord. These can give rise to symptoms like:

  • Persistent back pain and discomfort
  • Numbness in the lower limbs
  • Loss of bladder control
  • Trouble with motor skills 

Things you need to know

  • The procedure will take anywhere between 1 to 3 hours, depending upon the adversity of the problem that is to be addressed.  
  • Your average hospital stay will be around 2 to 5 days depending upon your convalescence

How to prepare for the treatment?

  • You need to undergo certain screenings and tests for proper evaluation and assessment of your condition
  • You need to inform your doctors about any medicine or supplements that you have been taking
  • You need to refrain from smoking and use of any recreational drug
  • You need to fast, starting 12 hours prior to the surgery

Procedure involved

  • The procedure is carried out under the influence of general or local anaesthesia 
  • The surgical site is cleaned, followed by making an incision 
  • The muscles and ligaments will be moved aside for better access
  • The surgeon will carefully remove the lamina, or a part of it, depending upon your individual requirement
  • This is followed by the removal of the bone spurs and disk fragments 
  • Your surgeon may also perform a spinal fusion, which is carried out by reconnecting the bones in order to stabilize the spine.
  • The incision is closed and covered.

What to expect after the treatment?

  • After the surgery, you will be shifted to the recovery room where you will be kept under observation
  • Soon after you gain consciousness, you will be asked to move around. This, however, is not for patients who also had a spinal fusion
  • You need to avoid indulging in rigorous physical activities and refrain fro0m lifting heavy objects
  • You need to go for regular follow-ups and keep your doctor updated about your recovery 

Potential risks that you need to know about:

  • Bleeding at the surgical site
  • Clot formation, especially in the lower limbs and lungs
  • Nerve root injury
  • Spinal cord injury
