Minimally Invasive Lumbar Laminectomy
Outpatient Spine Surgery: Minimally Invasive Lumbar Laminectomy
A minimally invasive lumbar laminectomy involves removing a portion of the lamina; a thin piece of bone located at the back of each vertebral body that covers and protects the spinal canal. A micro-laminectomy may include removing bony overgrowths (ie, osteophytes) and ligament tissue compressing spinal nerves at one or more levels of the spine.
The spine surgeons at Central New York Brain and Spine Neurosurgery specialize in performing minimally invasive lumbar laminectomy procedures.
