Laminotomy is a surgical procedure that helps to decompress the spinal cord or the spinal nerves that emerge from the vertebral column. It is done with aim of removing any structure that narrows the spinal canal and free the entrapped nerves. In this procedure a small incision is made in the lamina as opposed to laminectomy where the entire lamina is removed. As a result laminotomy procedure decompresses the spinal cord without compromising with the spinal stability. Any space occupying structure within the spinal canal like herniated or bulging disc, thickened ligament, osteophytes (bone spurs), facet joint thickening can compress the spinal cord resulting in symptoms such as pain, numbness, tingling and weakness of the hand or legs. In extreme cases loss of bowel and bladder control is also observed. Laminotomy aims at making an incision in the lamina, to remove a small part of it, creating room for the spinal cord within the canal.
Those patients suffering from any of the following conditions for a considerably prolonged period of time without any substantial relief from medications, rest or physical therapy may be advised for this procedure.

Patients may sometimes require one or two stitches and after a few hours of monitoring, are allowed to leave (accompanied by a companion) on the same day of surgery. The Physical therapist gives guidelines on the various techniques of walking, sitting and lifting to avoid any strain on the back for the first few weeks. The therapist also explains a set of exercises for the back to increase strength and endurance which are to be performed gradually as the incision pain subsides.
“My brother was suffering severe back pain. I showed it to local doctors in my home country and they were of the opinion that my brother might need a spinal disc surgery. But there are no good hospital or facility for such surgery in my home country. Then I started to search for hospital outside my country for the treatment. The hospitals in South Africa quoted a huge amount for the treatment which was beyond my reach. Then one of my friends told me about India. He told that there are good hospitals and doctors in India and the cost is low.
I searched on the internet and I found IndiaCarez.com website. I filled up the form on the website. I got a call from the case manager and she told me to send the medical reports of my brother. I sent the reports by mail and the case manager got back to me with the opinion doctor and the treatment package.
She was very kind and explained me in detail about the package and traveling to India for Spine surgery. The quote was affordable to me and I was satisfied with the profile of the treating doctor. The case manager helped me with the passport, visa and the air tickets which saved a lot of my time.
We stayed in India for few more days for follow up. Overall it was a great experience. My brother is doing well and I am extremely grateful to the doctors. I thank everyone who helped me and my brother at every step.”
