Spine Surgery: Cervical Laminoplasty

Decompression neck surgery to remove pressure on the spinal cord and nerves caused by spinal stenosis

A cervical laminoplasty is performed to remove pressure on the spinal cord and nerves caused by spinal stenosis, a condition in which there is a narrowing of the spinal canal. The laminoplasty procedure involves making a hinge on one side of the lamina to create more space, relieving the pressure on the spinal cord.
