Laminectomy is a surgical procedure performed to treat a condition called spinal stenosis.

Dr. Myles Laminectomy at the Institute of Spinal Disorders

Spinal stenosis is a condition that primarily affects elderly patients, and is caused by degenerative changes that result in compression of the nerves. The main purpose of the surgery is to enlarge your spinal canal to relieve pressure on the spinal cord and nerves. Lamina, the back part of the vertebra that covers your spinal canal, is removed during the surgery. Laminectomy is also known as decompression surgery.

Here at the Institute of Spinal Disorders, we provide the latest diagnostics and treatments for every spinal problem. Dr. Myles has expertise in performing laminectomies and many other routine spinal procedures to treat simple disorders to complex spinal conditions.

When indicated, a laminectomy surgical procedure can play an important role to take back your back. If you are experiencing pain and would like to know more about your treatment options, including laminectomy, please call our office today at 817-288-0084.
