LAMINOTOMIES IN MIAMI
Miami Minimally Invasive Spine Surgeon
A laminotomy is a surgical procedure that aims to reduce the pressure on the spinal cord or spinal nerve root by removing part of the lamina of the vertebral arch. When chronic pain affects your life, you have the right to secure skilled medical treatment. At Alexander Bone & Spine Institute, our Miami spine specialist and surgeon can help you take the steps you need to recover from chronic and severe back pain.
This procedure is especially useful for conditions that compress the nerves in the spinal cord, including:
- Spinal stenosis
- Herniated discs
Should I Consider a Laminotomy?
The laminotomy procedure involves making a small incision into the back and using a magnifying glass to see what is causing your back pain and how the nerves of the spine are affected. Depending on your specific needs, part of the lamina of the vertebral arch can be removed in a minimally invasive spinal surgical procedure. Choosing this option leaves you with a small, barely noticeable scar and is less damaging to the muscles surrounding the spine. In addition, patients choosing this option have a low risk of encountering medical complications and the recovery time is limited to a day or two.
