Cervical And Lumber Spine Degenerative Disease

Degenerative spine conditions involve the gradual loss of normal structure and function of the spine over time. They are usually caused by aging, but may also be the result of tumors, Discitis (Inflammation of the intervertebral disc), Scoliosis, infections or arthritis. Pressure on the spinal cord and nerve roots caused by degeneration can be caused by:

  • Slipped or herniated discs 
  • Spinal stenosis, or narrowing of the spinal canal
  • Osteoarthritis, or breakdown of the cartilage at the spinal joints

Laminectomy For Spine

Laminectomy is a surgery that creates space by removing the lamina — the back part of a vertebra that covers your spinal canal. Also known as decompression surgery, laminectomy enlarges your spinal canal to relieve pressure on the spinal cord or nerves.

This pressure is most commonly caused by bony overgrowths within the spinal canal, which can occur in people who have arthritis in their spines. These overgrowths are sometimes referred to as bone spurs, but they're a normal side effect of the ageing process in some people.

Bony overgrowths within the spinal canal can narrow the space available for your spinal cord and nerves. This pressure can cause pain, weakness or numbness that can radiate down your arms or legs.

  • Laminectomy is generally used only when more-conservative treatments — such as medication, physical therapy or injections — have failed to relieve symptoms. Laminectomy may also be recommended if symptoms are severe or worsening dramatically.
  • Because the laminectomy restores spinal canal space but does not cure you of arthritis, it more reliably relieves radiating symptoms from compressed nerves than it does back pain from spinal joints.
  • It is consistent and good results and the patients recover well over the span of 6 to 12 weeks.
