MIAMI MINIMALLY INVASIVE SPINE SURGEON
Get Relief with a Foraminotomy
When your back pain is caused by compression of the nerves by intervertebral foramina, a foraminotomy procedure can relieve this pressure and treat your pain. Nerve compression can be a significant cause of pain, numbness, tingling, weakness, and stiffness. In a minimally invasive spinal surgery, a small cut is made in the back and a small hole is cut into the vertebrae. Through this hole, a spinal surgeon can determine whether bone, disc, scar tissue, or excessive ligaments are compressing the foramen, and remove the cause of the back pain.
Since there are numerous disorders that can cause the compression of the nerve root, a foraminotomy may be performed in conjunction with additional pain relief surgeries, such as a laminotomy or a discectomy. Both can be performed in a minimally invasive surgical procedure, ensuring light recovery time and a reduction in complications.
