Laminotomy surgery at Laser Spine Institute in Scottsdale can relieve pain from many degenerative spine conditions
Chronic pain and other severe symptoms associated with compression can have a devastating impact. When you suffer from chronic neck or back pain, you may feel as though you are being forced to sit on the sidelines, watching life pass you by. We understand the urgency you feel to get back to the life you love, which is why we are devoted to helping as many patients as possible with our minimally invasive laminotomy procedure.
Help for chronic pain
At Laser Spine Institute, we understand how hard it can be to live with the pain of spinal cord or nerve root compression. If you are experiencing painful symptoms associated with compression, we recommend that you first try conservative (non-surgical) treatment options for pain. This may include:
- Pain-relief medications
- Physical therapy
- Low-impact exercise
- Chiropractic care
Many patients find these options helpful at reducing pain and other symptoms associated with compression. However, if conservative treatments fail to provide relief after several months of use, surgery may be the next ideal treatment option. If your doctor has recommended traditional open neck or back surgery for compression, we invite you to learn all you can about the multiple benefits available with our minimally invasive procedures available at Laser Spine Institute.
Minimally invasive laminotomy
Minimally invasive laminotomy is a safer and effective alternative to traditional open neck and back surgery, helping to relieve pressure on the spinal cord.^ Performed through a small incision, the laminotomy releases compression, while opening up the space in the spinal canal. During the procedure, the surgeon is able to carefully separate your muscles, eliminating any unnecessary cutting and tearing and reducing your recovery time.
The most common conditions treated by laminotomy include:
