Laminectomy in Bangladesh
The lamina — the back part of a vertebra that protects your spinal canal — is removed during laminectomy surgery to create room. Laminectomy, also called decompression surgery, enlarges the spinal canal to relieve pressure on the spinal cord and nerves.
Laminectomy is often used to relieve back or neck pain that persists after medical care. It’s often done if the pain is followed by nerve injury symptoms like numbness or weakness in the arms or legs. Surgery is normally needed when bowel or bladder control is lost due to pressure in the cervical or lumbar spine.
