How is the surgery performed?
Decompressive laminectomy can be performed as an open surgery or laparoscopic surgery. The attending surgeon removes all of the lamina of the vertebra to widen the spinal canal creating more space for the spinal nerves.
Laminotomy, just a portion of the lamina is removed to relieve pressure and accompanying complications.
Spinal Fusion Surgery is also a treatment resort for spinal stenosis.

What is the post-operative care?
Limb movement and sensation will be monitored. The back will be painful and analgesics will be given. In some cases a urinary catheter is passed into the bladder to pass urine. Once up, the patient will have physiotherapy to stop the back stiffening up. The majority of patients also require some physiotherapy.
