Best Laminectomy Spine Surgeon NYC

Laminectomy spine surgery is offered at Herniated Disc Surgery Specialists of NYC. Our best rated orthopedic spine surgeons commonly perform laminectomy surgery to relieve the pain associated with herniated discs or spinal stenosis. Following a laminectomy, you should quickly experience improvement of some or all symptoms. Laminectomy is a very common and routine type of orthopedic spine surgery for treating lower back pain or sciatica.

Laminectomy, also known as decompression laminectomy, is a spinal surgery performed by our NYC board certified orthopedic spine surgeons to relieve excess pressure on the spinal nerve(s) in the lumbar (lower back) region. The laminectomy surgery itself involves the partial removal or cutting of the lamina (roof) of the vertebral bones to provide space for the nerves to exit from the spine. Laminectomy can be performed in the neck, thoracic, or lower back area depending on the location of the herniated disc compression.

Dr McCance fused 3 of my vertebrae on 3/15/21, almost immediately I had relief from years of Sciatica pain and discomfort, while still in pain from the surgery, I knew long term life changing relief was on the way. 2 months later, I still can’t believe I waited this long to have Dr McCance heal my back, his staff is kind, caring, helpful, compassionate . Can’t say enough, I wouldn’t let anyone I love or know go to any other spine doc, anywhere!! ~ Google

I am 54 years old and was diagnosed with severe spinal stenosis in my lower back with symptoms ranging from numbness in my right leg and toes, heavy feeling walking, back pain and pins and needles in my right leg. On 1/29/20 Dr. McCance and his team performed a Laminectomy on me at Mt. Sanai Hospital in NYC and i am now pain free and walked out of the hospital 3 days later. I couldn’t say enough about this doctor and how professional and helpful he and his team are with their patients. I would absolutely recommend Dr. McCance! ~ HealthGrades
