Laminectomy information and locations in Mexico

Laminectomy helps relieve the pressure on the spinal cord by removing a part or all of the vertebral bone (lamina).
A laminectomy can be done to treat neck or back pain, herniated disc, or diseases like spinal stenosis or tumors. During a laminectomy, surgeons remove the bony arch of the vertebra; this is called a lamina and is the section that covers the nerves inside the spine, depending on the patient’s condition, a small part, or the entire lamina could be removed.
In some cases, the neurosurgeon can remove a part of a disc or do a spinal fusion at the same time that the laminectomy.
