Post Laminectomy Syndrome


Post Laminectomy Syndrome

A laminectomy is a surgery in which doctors remove part of your vertebra that is causing pressure on your nerves. In theory, the surgery should reduce pain on your spine. However, the patient continues to feel pain even after the laminectomy. This condition is known as Post Laminectomy Syndrome.

The cause of this syndrome can be due to many factors. A few common ones are returning nerve root compression and disc herniation. Other natural causes are spinal instability, post-surgical scarring, face joint inflammation, or joint hypermobility.
