Stella Gimba from Kenya shares her experience about Advanced Spine Treatment in India relieved her of back pain and made her life joyful
“Last Year I was unable to walk without assistance and had minimal function of my hands. Six months earlier I began experiencing cramping in my legs. As my symptoms worsened, I saw several specialists and had an MRI and CT scan of my lumbar spine.
The MRI of the cervical spine showed severe spinal cord compression at levels C4 through C7 which resulted in a condition called myelopathy, the cause of my symptoms. The spine surgeon met me and explained in detail what was causing my symptoms and the type of surgery necessary to take pressure off the spinal cord.
Today I can cook simple meals. I can go for morning walk again and take short shopping trips. I’ve had a complete turnaround in my quality of life since the spine surgery in India. Thank you everyone at SafeMedTrip.com.Request a Call Back
Why you should choose World Class Hospitals in India for Most Advanced Minimally Invasive Laminotomy Surgery ?
What is Laminotomy
The laminotomy procedure is a minimally invasive endoscopic surgery carried out on an out patient basis.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.
Which Kind of Patients Require This Procedure?
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.
- Ankylosing spondylitis
- Degenerative disc disease
- Herniated disc
- Spinal stenosis
- Spondylosis (also known as spinal osteoarthritis)
Why Laminotomy Spine Surgery?
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.
This relieves the compression and thus the symptoms disappear. Through the hole in the lamina, the thickened ligament or disc fragment which may be compressing the cord and nerves are also removed.Get Estimate
