35 Spine Laminectomy Stories

A laminectomy is a type of surgery done to relieve compression of the spinal cord or spinal nerves due to degenerative conditions and bone spurs. The surgery removes bone (vertebral lamina) around the spinal canal and gives extra space to help decompress the area and relieve the pain.

Cara Pennsburg, PA

"When I arrived in NY at HSS for the first time, I immediately realized I found an amazing, warm environment with caring, intelligent professionals who could possible advise me to make the right decision for my future. Dr. Cunningham, I have never met such a warm, compassionate, caring, confident, detail oriented doctor as yourself. You have such an incredible bed side manner and such an amazing way of talking with your patients about the procedures that will occur which definitely eased my mind and lessened my fear. Thank you again for the exceptional care I received the second time around at HSS. You have gone above and beyond protocol to ensure quality care."

"I recovered from the operation quickly and easily. I am now free of back pain, able to walk without inhibition and looking forward to the moment at the end of the month when I can once again bend over and touch my toes – or, more usefully, tie my shoelaces."
