Lumbar Laminectomy is a type of laminectomy surgery focused on the lumbar spine. It is usually the last call after back pain exercises and back pain remedies fail to provide an expected effect. As it takes place in other types of laminectomy, lumbar laminectomy means removing the lamina or bony outer layer of the spine in order to diminish the pressure on the spinal cord. It is a popular back pain treatment and leads to back pain relief.
There are many medical conditions which may require the use of lumbar laminectomy, including:
• Scoliosis – lumbar laminectomy may be used as a last resort for degenerative scoliosis in adults.
• Lumbar spinal stenosis – age-related degeneration of joints and discs in the lumbar spine may cause an increased pressure on the spinal cord and as a result – to symptoms of spinal stenosis such as growing pain (especially sciatic nerve pain) and disturbance of motoric functions. In such a case lumbar laminectomy is thought to be a viable medical solution.
• Removing spine tumors may also be conducted with using lumbar laminectomy. In order to remove spine cancers, doctors need to remove the lamina.
