Bony overgrowths sometimes happen within the spinal cord that can cause the pressure to build up. The pressure over a period can severely cause pain and numbness. Daily activities can severely be hampered when the pain prolongs. A neurosurgeon will initially go for conventional methods like medications, physical therapies, and injections. When all such convention methods fail, then a neurosurgeon will go for a decompression surgery also known as the Laminectomy Treatment. Laminectomy is a definition used for the procedure where the vertebra that engulfs the spinal cord is surgically removed. A free movement is achieved once this extra pressure or growth is surgically removed. A Spinal stenosis is performed where an incision over the infected vertebrae is done, and the overgrowth in the lamina is surgically removed. Microscopic surgical instruments are used to make this treatment possible. Sometimes when the gaps between the vertebrae are significant, then metal rods and screws and prosthesis are affixed to help in the movements. Over time these procedures have become painless, and a patient can be discharged on the same day. Post surgery the recuperation period is critical. Physical exercises and therapies and medications should be followed religiously. Physically taxing work and pressure to the body should be avoided at all cost. An average period of a full recovery takes place in about six months, and it entirely depends on the commitment to physical exercises that would make this possible.
