A Laminotomy is a surgical treatment where a small portion of the lamina is removed from the vertebral body so decompression may be achieved. A Laminotomy is often performed in conjunction with different decompressive procedures like Foraminotomy and Discectomy.
With a Laminotomy Procedure, the goal is to achieve the most decompression with as very little surgery as possible. Some spinal conditions result in the lamina striking upon the exiting nerve roots of the foramen or the spinal cord itself. Once this happens, symptoms arise and they will present in a variety of ways such as; burning sensations, numbness, and tingling, weakness, atrophy, shooting or stabbing pain.
A Laminotomy is a surgical treatment and intrinsically must always be thought-about as a final resort. Patients should be encouraged to exhaust all measures of conservative treatment before surgery should be thought about. If symptoms persist or worsen throughout the course of conservative treatment, a laminotomy may be considered in conjunction with different procedures.
Laminotomy is a minimally invasive procedure that serves the purpose to help patients avoid a lot of typical open back types of procedures. If you’ve got exhausted conservative care and are in need of relief – Please discuss it with us so we are able to talk about options which will grant you relief.
What to expect in surgery:
Most laminotomy procedures are performed through outpatient minimally invasive approaches that we with provide at Laser Spine Orlando. Once the patient reaches the facility for a Laminotomy Procedure there’s usually a brief amount of your time spent in the immediate pre-op unit. A Laminotomy with associated decompressive procedures can usually take 60-90 minutes in the hospital room. Following surgery patients can usually spend a brief amount of your time within the post-anesthesia care unit (PACU). Patients are then discharged and can leave the facility for the day.
