What is Posterior Cervical Laminectomy?
As a neck surgeon, Dr. Braxton performs posterior cervical laminectomy and fusion for patients diagnosed with cervical stenosis and other degenerative diseases of the neck. The surgery involves removing the lamina, a component of the spinal anatomy that, when removed, can ameliorate symptoms caused by cervical spinal stenosis. This includes degeneration, nerve obstruction, crowding, compression and pinching.
Removing the lamina restores space for the cervical spinal cord and compression and pinching are alleviated which enables normal cervical nerve function. Patients diagnosed with cervical spinal stenosis can benefit from Dr. Braxton’s posterior cervical laminectomy and fusion.
