Am I a candidate for a laminectomy?
This surgery is considered when non-surgical treatments for spinal conditions have proven ineffective. To improve the results, doctors might recommend a laminectomy with another procedure, like a discectomy. We recommend you to refer to one of our professional doctors for an evaluation to determine if you are a candidate for this procedure.
How do I prepare for a laminectomy?
You will be instructed to stop eating and drinking before the procedure, along with avoiding blood-thinning medications.
How will recovery be like?
The first 2 weeks after the procedure, you will not be able to bend or twist your back. If needed, you will be given a series of exercises that will help your back to recover its strength.
