WHAT IS POSTERIOR CERVICAL LAMINOPLASTY?

 

This is the name for the procedure performed from the back to alleviate pressure on nerves which are compressed from stenosis. The back part of the spine, the lamina, is opened and the compression is decreased. The bone may be secured in the new, opened position with bone or plates and screws.
