Decompression Lamina Surgery
A Laminectomy is the most aggressive of three possible procedures that may be performed to remove pressure on nerves on the backside of the spinal canal. In this procedure, the entire lamina (an arched bone covering the spinal canal) is removed to alleviate pressure on the spinal nerves.
Laminectomy is a complex procedure that not every surgeon is prepared to perform. Dr. Robert S. Biscup, however, has been a practicing orthopedic surgeon for over 30 years and is considered to be an expert on spine surgery. He has the skills necessary to perform this advanced treatment with extreme precision. He has also worked on enough spinal conditions to know when a patient’s condition is serious enough to warrant this procedure.
If you have been told you need a laminectomy, contact Biscup Spine for a second opinion.
We offer free MRI review.
Do I Need a Laminectomy?
If you have been told you need a laminectomy, it is strongly recommended that you receive a second opinion before agreeing to the procedure. This extreme procedure should only be used as a last resort for back pain, and you also want to be sure that your surgeon is familiar enough with the procedure to perform it correctly.
Laminectomies are often part of spinal fusion surgery. Removing the lamina allows the surgeon a better view of the spinal canal, allowing them to implant spinal screws and rods with greater accuracy.
Feel confident about your upcoming surgery by working one-on-one with a skilled spinal surgeon.
