Cervical Laminectomy

A Cervical Laminectomy is similar to a Cervical Corpectomy. It is used to treat spinal stenosis patients who have developed inflamed discs and bone spurs that cause irritation to the spinal column. In Cervical Laminectomy the surgery is preformed from the back of the neck rather than the front. Usually no extra fusions or stabilization is necessary if the procedure is done correctly. Patients will usually be prescribed a neck brace for several weeks following the surgery to help the cervical region heal properly.
