It is a surgical procedure to remove lamina. Lamina is the back part of vertebra that covers spinal canal. It is also called as decompression surgery. Laminectomy may also be done to remove bone spurs in spine. It can take a pressure of spinal nerves. Laminectomy is generally used only when more-conservative treatments such as medication, physical therapy or injections have failed to relieve symptoms. Laminectomy may also be recommended if symptoms are severe or worsening dramatically. Laminectomy is often done to treat spinal stenosis. The procedure removes bones and damaged disks, and makes more room for your spinal nerve and column.
