Lumbar Laminectomy: Hemilaminectomies, Hemi-Facetectomies, Foraminotomies

A lumbar laminectomy is a low back operation. Its purpose is to relieve pressure on the nerve roots that stem from the spine to form nerves in the legs.

The back of the spine has a bony “shingle” on either side of the midline. These angled segments of bone are known as the laminae, and they allow muscles to attach to the spine and also protect the nerve roots.

Removal of these laminae is known as a laminectomy, hemilaminectomy, or partial hemilaminectomy.
