A laminectomy is a spinal surgery to relieve pain and other symptoms caused by stenosis, the narrowing of your spinal canal. During this procedure, a top surgeon removes the laminae or bony roof from your spinal column to relieve pressure on your spinal cord. Any pressure, obstruction or injury to your spinal cord causes extreme pain and other life-altering symptoms.
Probably the best medical office I have been to in my life. Everything was very clean and organized. All the workers made me feel comfortable, even though I was nervous as heck. I could really feel the sympathy and their genuine concern for my well-being. Spine surgery is scary, and it’s so nice to have people who understand and will make you feel better.Emma Newman
