Minimally Invasive Cervical Laminectomy
Posterior Cervical Laminectomy and Fusion
A minimally invasive cervical laminectomy and fusion is a procedure used to decompress and stabilize the cervical spine. This relieves pain, weakness and numbness caused by narrowing of the spinal canal, a condition called spinal stenosis.
Spinal stenosis is defined by the excessive bone and ligament growth of the spinal canal. As a result, the narrowing compresses the spinal cord leading to neck pain, often accompanied with radiating arm pain, numbness or weakness.
The spine surgeons at Central New York Brain and Spine Neurosurgery specialize in performing minimally invasive cervical laminectomy procedures.
