Laminectomy Definition

Laminectomy is surgery that is intended to create space by removing the back part of the vertebra that covers your spinal canal, known as the lamina.

Also known as decompression surgery, this procedure enlarges your spinal canal to relieve pressure on the spinal cord or nerves.


The impact of an accident can cause injury to the victims spine, resulting in bulging, ruptured or otherwise injured vertebrae. These damaged discs put pressure on the spinal cord and nerves in the victims back. When more conservative approaches to relieving pressure are ineffective, doctors will resort to this surgical course of action.

Recovery of Damages

If you require this type of surgical procedure as the result of an accident or due to the negligence of a third party, it is important that you seek the counsel of an attorney immediately. An attorney with experience handling cases that require surgery to address the injury incurred, can see that you are adequately compensated for medical bills, lost wages and future earnings, pain and suffering and more.
