Laminectomy is a surgery that creates space by removing lamina. Lamina is a part of vertebra bone. This is done to treat spinal stenosis. This laminectomy is used to remove bones and damaged disks. Thus provides more empty space for spinal nerve and column. There are many risks in this surgery like infection in wounds or vertebral bones, damage to a spinal nerve, weakness, pain and return of back pain in future is possible.
