Spinal Decompression

Spinal Decompression Cost in India

Spinal decompression surgery is performed to relieve pain caused by spinal stenosis (narrowing) which occurs due to age-related changes or some other aetiology. The aim of the surgery is to relieve pain in the spinal cord as well as associated nerves. There are various procedures designed aiming to reduce pressure on the nerve. The procedure is chosen depending on the aetiology (cause).

Spinal stenosis is a condition usually caused by age-related changes such as arthritis, enlarged joints, bulging discs, bone spurs, and thickened ligaments. Spinal decompression can be performed along the spine starting from the neck region (also known as the cervical region) to the lower back region (also known as a lumbar region) depending upon the source of pain. In this surgery, access is gained through a cut or an incision in the back muscles. The goal of this procedure is to relieve back or leg pain.

Types of spinal decompression

  1. Surgical spinal decompression
  2. Non-surgical spinal decompression also known as Microdectomy

The following are common surgical techniques for decompression:

  1. Discectomy: In this procedure, a part of a disk is removed to relieve pressure on the surrounding nerve roots.
  2. Laminectomy: In this procedure, a small part of arch (bony in nature) of spinal cord is removed, these are known as the lamina. By removing the lamina, the size of the spinal canal is increased, thus resulting in relieving pressure.
  1. Foraminotomy or foraminectomy: These procedures are done to increase the exit area for the nerve roots in the spinal cord by removing some of the bone as well as surrounding tissue.
  2. Osteophyte removal: In this procedure bony growths which are known as the osteophytes or bone spur which are putting pressure on the spinal cord are removed.
  3. Corpectomy: In this surgery, the body of a vertebra, as well as the disks, are removed.

A single technique or a combination of techniques may be used depending upon the case and in few cases, a fusion of the vertebrae may also be needed to provide stabilization and support the spine.
