Cervical laminoplasty is a surgical technique that removes pressure from the spinal cord in the neck. Pressure on the spinal cord can be due to various causes including degenerative changes, arthritis, bone spurs, disc herniations, tumors, or fractures.

Cervical laminoplasty is performed to treat conditions in which a narrowing spinal canal puts pressure on the spinal nerves or spinal cord.
Solutions in cervical laminoplasty
Conditions sometimes treated by decompression with a cervical laminoplasty include ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament, a condition in which a ligament in the spinal canal becomes thickened and inflexible; cervical spondylotic myelopathy, degenerative changes that cause myelopathy in the cervical spine; and cervical stenosis, a narrowing of the spinal canal in the cervical spine. Other surgical options for decompression in the cervical spine include the anterior cervical discectomy or corpectomy.
