A laminoplasty differs from a laminectomy in that the lamina is repositioned rather than removed.
What can I say about a surgeon who completely healed my unaligned cervical spine and squished together vertebrae that had no fluid or space at all. I went to a different surgeon first, who told me that I needed immediate surgery, and even then, I would still retain the pain that I had (note past tense)up until the surgery. The thought of that devastated me. All I did was cry. Thank God that my husband called his shattered ankle and torn meniscus surgeon who was a friend and former classmate of Dr. McCance at Columbia Medical School. Best recommendation ever! Dr. McCance performed state of the art surgery on me, using a titanium box filled with my own bone marrow to create the space and fluid. He also realigned my cervical spine. ZERO spinal pain within a very short time of the surgery! I can exercise, walk, and do everything like a much younger person. I am 66. It’s great to be agile again! Thank God that Dr. McCance is such a brilliant surgeon who keeps up with all the latest technologies! I am truly blessed! He also has a fabulous team! Thank you so much. ~ Google
Cervical laminoplasty: Cervical laminoplasty (surgery of the neck) is an orthopedic spine surgery performed by our spine surgeons to open up the spinal canal to relieve pressure off the spinal cord and nerves. The spinal canal is held “open” by attaching small metal plates between the edges of the lamina. Because laminoplasty is not a fusion procedure, neck range of motion is preserved. Laminoplasty spine surgery also provides stability to the spine and because of this, in some cases it reduces the risk of ‘post-laminectomy kyphosis’, a condition where the neck progressively bends forward over time.
Lumbar laminoplasty: Lumbar laminoplasty (the lower part of the back) is an orthopedic spine surgery used to relieve abnormal pressure in the spinal cord by surgically creating more space within a narrowed (or impinged) section of the lower spine.
Laminoplasty: Laminoplasty is a motion preserving orthopedic spine surgery designed to alleviate chronic nerve related pain and restore a more optimal range of motion, laminoplasty is often used to correct stenosis in the lower back (lumbar spine) or neck (cervical spine). It can also be used to access and treat a problematic bone spur, an abnormal growth (tumor), or a fluid-filled cyst (syringomyelia).
