Conditions and Treatments

Lumbar Laminectomy / Spinal Decompression

Spinal arthritis and stenosis is a frequent cause of back pain, due to the compression of nerves by bone spurs. Lumbar or spinal decompression surgery, also known as lumbar laminectomy, is a commonly utilized procedure for the treatment of symptoms caused by spinal arthritis. By removing the source of nerve compression, lumbar laminectomies often result in significant improvement in a patient’s pain. These procedures are typically performed as outpatient surgery by Dr. Singh at Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush.
