A laminectomy, sometimes referred to as decompression surgery, removes the part of the vertebra called the lamina, which takes pressure off the nerves in the low back, helping to reduce symptoms.

When you suffer from chronic back or limb pain, it affects everything you do. The spinal specialists at Northwestern Medicine understand how difficult it is to live with neurological and orthopaedic pain.
