Robotic-Assisted Laminectomy

The board-certified surgeons at The Institute for Robotic Surgery are among the most sought-after laminectomy spine surgeons in the country. Our minimally invasive, robotic-assisted laminectomy is a safer and more accurate surgical treatment option for patients who are seeking relief from painful spine conditions.

Do I need a Laminectomy?

Laminectomy is surgery that is done to relieve pressure on the spinal cord and nerves by enlarging and creating space in your spinal canal. During a laminectomy, a surgeon will remove part or all of the vertebral bone. The pressure is most commonly caused by overgrowths in the spinal canal often referred to as “bone spurs.” Bone spurs often appear in people who have arthritis and are a normal side effect of the aging process in many people. Additional reasons for a laminectomy include:

Laminectomy is generally used only when symptoms interfere with daily life and non-surgical treatments such as medication or physical therapy, have not worked to relieve pain.

Am I a Candidate for a Laminectomy?

You and your doctor may decide you are a good candidate for robotic-assisted laminectomy surgery if conservative treatment has not resulted in relief from pain and discomfort. Or, if the pain and discomfort are interfering with your quality of life.

You may want to consider a laminectomy if you are experiencing the following:

  • Pain, weakness, or loss of feeling in your leg or foot
  • Significant leg pain compared to back pain
  • You have trouble moving around or standing
  • Loss of bladder control
  • Nonsurgical solutions have not worked
  • Diagnosed spinal stenosis

If you have a confirmed spine condition, have not seen success or results with non-surgical treatments, you could be a candidate for a laminectomy at the Institute for Robotic Surgery. To find out if you are a candidate for a laminectomy, contact our Patient Advocates now or schedule a callback at a time that is convenient for you.
