Spinal stenosis is a narrowing of the spaces within your spine, which can put pressure on the nerves that travel through the spine.
Why choose Manipal Hospitals
Backed by the latest minimally invasive technological prowess, our neurosurgeons are skilled in performing high precision procedures such as Laminectomy. This procedure involves removes the back part (lamina) of the affected vertebra. Minimally invasive lumbar laminectomy generally involves smaller incisions, less postoperative pain, and less blood loss than open laminectomy. In addition to being less destabilizing to the spine, recovery is often faster. Many patients with spinal stenosis are elderly. Risks from surgery for spinal stenosis include damage to the nerves, tissue tears, chronic pain, and trouble passing urine.
