During regular everyday tasks, back or neck pain can need to be surgically treated. A laminectomy is a form of procedure requiring the removal of part or more of the spinal bone (lamina) by the surgeon. It tends to alleviate strain on the spinal cord or nerve roots caused by damage, herniated discs, channel tightening (spinal stenosis), or tumors. Only after other surgical procedures have not worked is a laminectomy considered.

Why would you need a laminectomy?

Low pain in the back or neck may vary from moderate, uncomfortable, irritating, extreme, and discouraging to permanent. Spinal pain will impair your ability to walk and operate. The spinal nerve may be lightened, a disc condition may be treated or a tumor removed from the spine. A herniated disc in the spine is a typical cause of a laminectomy.

A disc might be shifted or weakened due to wear or injury. This causes pain and occasionally engulfment or fatigue as the disc pulls on the spinal nerves. In the body part where the nerve is involved, mostly the arms or legs, the numbness or fatigue is felt. Sciatica is the most frequent symptom of a herniated disc. It is a sharp pain that extends from the fins to the thigh and down to the back of the leg through its sciatical nerve.


Typically, laminectomy includes a hospital stay. Procedures can differ according to your situation and the procedures of your doctor.

A laminectomy can occur during general anesthetics as you sleep. Otherwise, it can be performed during spinal anesthesia awake. You won’t feel from the waist when spinal anesthesia is used. New techniques that enable laminectomy to take place as an ambulator under local anesthesia are being created. This will be addressed in advance with the psychiatrist.

Treatment at B.P Poddar:

The most common surgical treatment for intra-spinal resection of tumors is pedicle screw fastening laminectomy. This procedure, however, affects the back structure and stability of the spine, leading to skin settlements, iatrogenic spinal stenosis, postoperative spinal deformity, pain, etc. Your surgeon may also conduct a spinal fusion during the surgery where two or more bones are fused to support the spine in the back. Your surgeon can also carry out a foraminotomy to enlarge the region through the spine with the nerve roots. Typically one to three hours takes a laminectomy.

Surgeons typically administer general anesthesia for laminectomy so that you remain unconscious during the operation. During the whole operation, the medical team controls your pulse rate, blood pressure, and blood oxygen levels. After surgery, you can hope to be strong or wretched on your back. In the weeks after surgery, this should change. You may have difficulty sitting or standing in one place long and in the weeks of the surgery you may require pain relief.
