Laminectomy With The Bonati Advantage 

A laminectomy is a surgical procedure performed to enlarge the spinal canal relieving pressure on the spinal nerves. A laminectomy enlarges the spinal canal by removing the lamina, vertbral bone that covers the spinal canal. When areas of the spine suffer abnormal narrowing due to trauma, aging, spondylolisthesis or arthritis, the robust pressure placed on spinal nerves causes neurological deficits, pain and restricted mobility. When traditional and conservative treatments fail to relieve back pain, a spine surgeon may recommend a laminectomy to remove the pressure and restore normal functioning to the spine.

Lumbar spinal stenosis is the most common type of stenosis (“narrowing”) diagnosed that frequently requires a minimally invasive laminectomy. Involving compression of the cauda equina, a bundle of spinal nerves and nerve roots near the base of the spine, spinal stenosis affects the lower limbs and pelvic organs. A laminectomy helps relieve pressure, reduce pain and restore range of motion.

Foraminotomy is commonly performed to relieve pain from:

A laminectomy performed with incision location which is predetermined using fluoroscopy and intraoperative X-ray. Sequentially placed dilators are

used to access the lamina by separating muscle. A laminectomy arthroscopic microscope is then utilized to remove overlying soft tissues and expose the bone. If applicable, bone spurs are removed as well as parts of the lamina responsible for pressure on nerves.
