Bony overgrowths in the spinal cord sometimes cause pressure that makes them vulnerable to severe pain and numbness. They can curtail our daily activities and makes us susceptible to weakness. Medications and physical therapies would be a part of the treatment in taking care of the condition. However in some cases when all the methods have failed, then back surgery could be the only possible way to treat the ailment. These types of Spinal Surgery Treatments are known as the Laminectomy Treatment or the decompression surgery treatment. Performed by Orthopedics this is the term given when the vertebra that engulfs the spinal cord is surgically removed. The pressure is thus relieved, and the movements are easily achieved. Also called as the lumbar spine surgery, an incision is made at the back, and microscopic surgical instruments are inserted to remove the vertebra with precision. Sometimes a fusion surgery is done as a part of this treatment when the gap between the vertebrae is found to be huge. The two parts are permanently fused together using nuts and screws, thus reducing the gap. The advances made in the medical field have made this procedure relatively painless and after a general check up the surgeon can decide if the patient can be discharged on the same day. Physical exercises and therapies and medications should be followed religiously. Heavy works and sitting and standing for a prolonged period should be avoided at all cost. Strength and flexibility exercises have to be done, and the complete recuperation might take up to six months.
