Lumbar Laminectomy

Laminectomy’s are back surgeries that are used to help alleviate compression in the spinal cord. The surgery takes the lamina and any bone spurs out of the back. All of these structures can end up causing a tremendous amount of pressure on your nerve roots and spinal cord. To relieve your back pain and be able to move around comfortably, schedule your surgery through I Need A Surgery with an Ambulatory Surgery Center near you.

How do I know if I need a lumbar laminectomy?

If you are experiencing mild to severe pain in your back, trouble walking, weakness or numbness in your legs or trouble controlling your bladder or bowel movements. Any of these signs and symptoms are normally a sign that your nerves and spinal column are being compressed.

How is the lumbar laminectomy procedure performed?

An anesthetic is given to you before the procedure takes place. The surgeon will cleanse the area over where the incision is going to be made using an antiseptic to help prevent an infection from setting in. A small incision is made in the middle of your neck or back. The ligaments, muscles and skin are moved to provide the surgeon with a better view. All or part of your lamina will be removed. Any small disc fragments and bone spurs are taken out. Sutures are used to close the incision. Sterile bandages are applied over your incision.

What is recovery like after a lumbar laminectomy?

During the recovery process, you should refrain from doing any heavy lifting or strenuous activity. When climbing stairs, take it slowly and carefully. Slowly go back to your regular activities. Make sure you go to any follow-up appointments to monitor your recovery. Avoid scrubbing the incision when you shower. Don’t apply creams or lotions to the incision site. Avoid any swimming pools, hot tubs or bathtubs until your provider gives you the okay.

How much does a lumbar laminectomy cost?

I Need A Surgery can get you the procedure through the Surgery Center Network for $10,100, versus having to pay $101,000 if you were to book the procedure through the hospital on your own. Pricing is exclusive of any implants or other hardware and is only an average. Your actual cost might be higher or lower.
