Lumbar Decompression Surgery
Relieving Spinal Pressure for Pain-Free Living
What type of surgery is it?
Lumbar Decompression Surgery, also known as a Laminectomy, involves removing a portion of the bone that covers the spinal canal, known as the lamina. If you’re suffering from chronic back pain, your doctor might recommend Lumbar Decompression Surgery as it is designed to alleviate pressure on the spinal nerves caused by spinal stenosis, herniated discs, or other conditions that affect the lumbar region of the spine.
How long does the surgery usually take?
The length of the surgery depends on the extent of the procedure and the patient’s overall health. Typically, lumbar decompression surgery can take anywhere from 1-3 hours to complete.
