Spinal stenosis is a common condition of the spine that occurs due to the narrowing of one or more areas of the spine.

This narrowing causes pinching of the spinal cord and nerve roots and causes pain, numbness, stiffness, and weakness. The pain mostly occurs in the lower back legs, neck, arms, and shoulders.

Frequently Asked Questions

General anesthesia is used for the majority of spinal operations. An intravenous (IV) line will be used to administer drugs to put you to sleep so that you don't feel any discomfort during the operation. Anesthesia poses a small but significant risk. Stroke, heart attack, brain injury, and death are among the dangers.

Yes, the spine is a huge part of the body, but that does not mean that any spinal operation requires a major procedure. Many spinal operations are minimally invasive, which means the surgeon only makes a few small incisions rather than a large one.

The most common operation for lumbar spinal stenosis is a laminectomy. A surgeon removes bone spurs, bone, or portions of the ligaments in your back during this operation. It relieves pressure on the spinal nerves and can help with pain or fatigue, but it can make the spine less flexible in the process.

A risk of lumbar decompression surgery is paralysis, which is a rare but severe complication. Many different issues, such as bleeding within the spinal column (spinal hematoma), can result in nerve damage and paralysis, as well as spinal fluid leakage (accidental durotomy).
