Foraminotomy

Free MRI Review

Procedure Details

Nerves in the spine can become compressed for a variety of reasons. You may have a disc herniation which is protruding into the foraminal canal or you may possibly be suffering from degenerative disc disease which has caused the spinal canals to become narrowed. This narrowing is also known as spinal stenosis or foraminal stenosis. Other common conditions that may indicate the need for a foraminotomy include: bone spurs, pinched nerve, sciatica, spinal arthritis.

If you do have any of these conditions, you may experience: local neck or back pain, radicular symptoms in the upper and lower extremities, weakness, atrophy, or loss of motor function. Nerve compression related symptoms can manifest in variety of ways and thus you may be experiencing symptoms that are entirely different than what is previously noted.

How can a foraminotomy help?

A minimally invasive foraminotomy is performed when the surgeon needs to decompress a particular segment of your spine that is causing your symptoms. The procedure itself address a particular condition which is known as foraminal stenosis. Our surgeon will skillfully remove whatever condition is causing the nerve root irritation and compression. If you have a bulging disc, the portion of the disc that is bulged into the foraminal canal and thereby causing narrowing will be removed. If you suffer from significantly degenerated discs and the foraminal canals have become narrowed due to the loss of disc height, the surgeon will remove minimally amounts of bone and ligament to effectively widen the canals and achieve decompression.

Minimally invasive procedures, such as a foraminotomy, will not be an option for every patient. It is important to do your research and consider all measures of conservative therapies before considering any kind of spine procedures. If your conservative treatment options have been exhausted and you are seeking relief from debilitating chronic neck and back pain, contact one of our patient consultants today to find out if our minimally invasive procedures could be the right option for you
