What is a Laminotomy?

A laminotomy is a spinal decompression surgery. During surgery a small portion of the lamina – a thin bony covering that protects the spinal cord and canal – is removed. The procedure is intended to remove pressure on the nerves and spinal cord to relieve pain. This procedure is similar to a laminectomy where a larger portion of the lamina is removed.
