Spinal Decompression

For best care our experts are there to help you

What is spinal decompression?

 

Spinal decompression surgery is used to give your spine nerves more space and relieve their compression. “Decompression” ideally means removing the tissue that is compressing a spinal nerve.

 

Spinal decompression can be performed anywhere along your spine from your neck to your lower back. Lumbar decompression surgery relieves lower back neural impingement. Spinal decompression surgery is used to treat:

 

  • Spinal stenosis - the narrowing of part of your spinal column that causes compression of the nerves inside.
  • Slipped or prolapsed disc and sciatica - a damaged spinal disc presses down and puts pressure on an underlying nerve. Sciatica is pain along your large sciatic nerve that can be severe and debilitating and, radiates down your leg from your lower back or buttock.
  • Spinal injuries - such as fractures or tissue swelling.
  • Metastatic spinal cord compression – when cancer in a part of your body, such as the lungs, spreads into your spine and puts pressure on the spinal cord or nerves.
  • Ankylosing spondylitis - a type of arthritis that causes inflammation of your joints and ligaments along your spine and, over time your joints may fuse.
  • Spondylosis - spinal degeneration such as osteoarthritis of the spine.
