New Jersey's TOP Orthopaedic and Spine Center specializing in Spinal Decompression

Spinal Decompression

What are Laminotomy and Laminectomy procedures?

Laminotomy and laminectomy are surgical procedures related to the lamina, which is the protective layer of bone covering the spine.

Laminotomy is the partial removal of this layer, while a laminectomy is the full removal.

Spinal Decompression

These are both decompression procedures, designed to alleviate the pressure on the spinal cord and spinal nerves. These surgical procedures allow access to the spinal canal and are used to treat such conditions as spinal stenosis or to facilitate removal of a herniated disc that is impacting the spinal nerve. In addition to herniated discs, these procedures also facilitate removal of any bone spurs, tumors or compromised (swollen) ligaments - all of which are causes of arm or leg pain.

These procedures, which can be performed at any location along the spine, do not compromise protection of the spine or spinal nerves. That’s because the spinal canal is well protected by muscles and the spinal joint.
