Patient Testimonial for Laminectomy

Testimonial by Ms. Jyoti Dhakal

Treatment for: Spinal Cord Tumor
Treated by: Dr. Venugopal G
Patient location: Sikkim

Laminectomy is a surgical procedure performed to relieve pressure on the spinal nerves caused by conditions like spinal stenosis, herniated discs, or other spinal issues. During a laminectomy, the surgeon makes an incision over the affected area of the spine and removes the lamina bone, along with any other tissue or structures causing compression on the nerves. The procedure aims to alleviate pain, numbness, or weakness in the back or legs by removing a part of the vertebral bone called the lamina. This removal enlarges the spinal canal, reducing pressure on the nerves and allowing more space for them to function properly.

The advantages of laminectomy include the relief of symptoms such as pain and numbness caused by nerve compression. It can improve mobility and function by reducing pressure on the spinal nerves. However, as with any surgery, there are risks and potential complications, including infection, bleeding, blood clots, nerve damage, spinal fluid leaks, or the possibility of the symptoms not completely resolving. Patients considering laminectomy should discuss the procedure’s benefits and risks with their healthcare provider to make informed decisions about their treatment options.

Ms. Jyoti Dhakal from Sikkim successfully underwent Laminectomy at Yashoda Hospitals, Hyderabad, under the supervision of Dr. Venugopal G, Consultant Neurosurgeon.
