A Laminectomy is a surgery that is performed to relieve pain, stress and tension to the spinal cord and nerves. This is done by removing a small portion of the associated vertebrae, usually the posterior spinous process and surrounding osteo tissue. This procedure is recommended by surgeons to treat a number of moderate to severe spinal disorders, but it can carry the risk of developing Post Laminectomy Syndrome. This is where the patient experiences lingering pain, stiffness and discomfort even if their laminectomy was performed correctly.
