Spinal Decompression & Fusion

Spinal decompression is a surgical procedure intended to relieve pressure on the spinal cord or on one or more compressed nerve roots passing through or exiting the spinal column.

Spinal fusion is a surgical procedure used to correct problems with the small bones in the spine (vertebrae). It is essentially a welding process. Spinal decompression surgery (laminectomy) removes the compressive structures, including hypertrophic ligamentum flavum and lumbar facet joint osteophytes. The goals of surgical treatment are to alleviate neural compression (decompression) and in selected patients with a deformity or instability to stabilize the spine (fusion), so as to prevent further spinal compression and recurrent symptoms.
