Laminectomy

Laminectomy is surgery that creates space by removing the lamina — the back part of a vertebra that covers your spinal canal. Also known as decompression surgery, laminectomy enlarges your spinal canal to relieve pressure on the spinal cord or nerves.

The spine surgeons at Central New York Brain and Spine Neurosurgery specialize in performing laminectomy procedures.
