Cervical laminectomy is a surgery performed on the cervical spine. Like other types of laminectomy, it involves removal of the lamina, a part of spine protecting the spinal cord. However, unlike lumbar laminectomy or thoracic laminectomy, it is an answer to a different set of medical conditions experienced by patients.
Candidates for cervical laminectomy are people with following conditions:
• Cervical spinal stenosis with myelopathy – it is experienced mostly by elderly people. With time degeneration of cervical spine may put pressure on spinal canal, leading to a set of cervical spinal stenosis symptoms such as problems with walking and attacks of pain in legs and arms.
• Cervical spondylosis – cervical spondylosis is another age-related disease of cervical spine’s joints and discs, which may with time lead to myelopathy.
• Spinal cancers – cancer occurring in and around spinal cord may cause doctors to perform cervical laminectomy surgery before cancer treatment itself in order to access the operation site.
Often there are other methods of fighting with cervical spinal stenosis and cervical spondylosis but when they fail, doctors decide for more radical approach – a cervical laminectomy.
