Posterior Laminectomy With or Without Fusion
Cervical Spine Services
A cervical laminectomy relieves pressure caused by spinal stenosis. In this procedure, a small section of bone that covers the back of the spinal cord, called the lamina, is removed. The remaining spine bones can be connected by titanium metal rods with screws attached to bones on each side. The procedure can also be done without fusion. Laminectomy is performed using microscopic techniques to minimize damage to surrounding healthy bone areas.
We also provide surgical treatment for the excision and reconstruction of vertebral tumors and complex cervical trauma, depending on the type and severity of the condition. Dr. Khounganian is specially trained in treating all cervical spine conditions with care and precision.
