Laminectomy (Cervical / Thoracic / Lumbar) Carson City, NV

Laminectomy is a neurosurgical decompression procedure that can be performed on any part of the spine (cervical, thoracic, lumbar). It removes the lamina (the back part of the vertebrae) covering the spinal cord to relieve pain and other symptoms. This advanced decompression surgery is offered by Dr. Sina Rajamand and his talented team at Battle Born Brain and Spine in Reno, NV.

Laminectomy is used by a neurosurgeon to create additional space in the spinal canal when it becomes compressed. This commonly occurs when a vertebra or spinal disc presses on the spinal cord or other nerve branches. This can happen as the result of a damaged vertebral disc, spinal stenosis, bone spur, tumor or as a result of trauma. When conservative measures do not relieve pain (including radiating pain), loss of mobility or other side effects, a laminectomy on the affected vertebrae is a common solution.

Carson City Spine Decompression Surgery

This form of spine decompression surgery is often combined with other procedures. Dr. Rajamand removes the lamina through a small incision in your back at the affected area. Then, if other repairs are needed, he can use tiny tools to remove foreign bodies, bone spurs, damaged disc fragments, tumors or other offending objects that may be pressing on the spine and nerve branches.

Laminectomy neurosurgery is also commonly combined with a spinal fusion to add stability where damaged spinal components have been removed. Dr. Rajamand can perform these surgical procedures using minimally-invasive techniques. By using fewer and smaller incisions and state-of-the-art surgical tools and camera technology, he can reduce the risks of infection or damage to nearby tissues or other structures. Plus, the smaller surgical space and incisions heal faster for a much quicker recovery.
