Treatment for Spinal Decompression Surgery
These are common decompression procedures:
- Discectomy – This requires a part of a disk to be removed to ease pressure on adjacent roots of the nerve.
- Laminotomy/Laminectomy – These processes require removing a tiny portion of the spinal canal’s bony arches, called the lamina. Only one part of the lamina is removed during a laminotomy. The whole lamina is removed during a laminectomy. Removal of the lamina raises the size, reducing the pressure of the spinal canal.
- Foraminotomy/Foraminectomy – Both methods expand the nerve-root openings and remove a bone and a certain tissue from the spinal cord. A foraminectomy refers to a surgery whereby a large number of bones and tissues are removed.
- Osteophyte removal – This includes removing osteophyte or bone spurs from bony growths.
- Corpectomy – This is a surgery to remove a vertebra’s body and disks.
