Lambar laminotomy or laminectomy is a surgical procedure that is performed in the lumbar spine to decompress or make room for the pinched nerves. Laminotomy can be done in a minimally invasive fashion for select patients. Patients with spinal stenosis who failed non-operative treatments are appropriate candidates.

A small skin incision is made in the back to access the spine. Under microscopic visualization, a part of spinal bone and ligaments are removed to relieve pressure off the nerves. This is a non-fusion procedure whereby patients retain their motion. Recovery is relatively quick and some patients can go home the same day following the procedure.
