Cervical Laminoplasty


Cervical laminoplasty is used to treat multiple levels of cervical stenosis. The procedure is performed through a posterior approach where the lamina, which is the roof of bone over the back of the spinal cord, is partially cut on both sides so that the lamina can "hinge" open. Then a bone graft is inserted to hold the lamina in this position, therefore taking the pressure off the spinal cord. Cervical stenosis could cause spinal cord injury, called myelopathy, which includes disruptions in the way you walk, impairments in fine motor skills in the hands, and problems with the bowel and bladder.
