About Laminectomy

This information is intended for general information only and should not be considered as medical advice on the part of Health-Tourism.com. Any decision on medical treatments, after-care or recovery should be done solely upon proper consultation and advice of a qualified physician.

What is Laminectomy?
Laminectomy is a surgical procedure commonly performed as a treatment for low back pain due to injury, spinal abnormalities or disc degeneration.

How is Laminectomy Performed?
In this procedure, a small fragment of the spinal disc is removed to relieve pain. The patient is required to lie down on the operating table with the face down. An incision is made over the particular vertebrae and deeper to the lamina. The nerve root is pulled back to the middle of the spinal column, and the disk or part of the disk is removed.

How to prepare for Laminectomy?

  • The patient should inform the doctor about any ailments, medical conditions and medication that the patient may be taking.
  • The patient should not smoke for several days before the surgery.
  • Two weeks prior to the surgery, the doctor may stop certain medication that the patient may be taking.
  • The doctor may advise patients undergoing a lumbar spine fusion surgery to take Fleets enema the night before the surgery.
  • The patient may need to give the following tests and examinations:
    • Physical examination
    • Electrocardiogram
    • X-rays
    • Blood and urine tests
    • Anesthesia interview
