Spinal (lumbar) decompression surgery

Spinal (lumbar) decompression surgery

Minimal waiting times and expert spinal surgery
at The Holly Private Hospital

Spinal stenosis problems can occur when the space containing spinal cord nerves in the spinal canal narrows. The nerves can get trapped where they leave the spine or in the spinal canal, meaning you have weakness and pain in your legs. It has three causes:

  • arthritis of the spine
  • thickened ligaments
  • discs bulging in the spine.

Lumbar spinal decompression surgery can help to reduce the pain and weakness of spinal stenosis and allow you to return to normal activities.

What happens during the operation?

You will usually have an MRI scan first to confirm the diagnosis and to give the surgeon a better idea of what the surgery needs to achieve. The operation takes an hour to an hour and a half and in most cases a general anaesthetic is commonly used.

During the operation your surgeon will cut into the central spine in the area of the lower back to free the trapped nerves by removing ligament and bone from the spine. With spinal stenosis surgery, the surgeon will realign and repair the bones using a bone graft or metal screws and rods.

As you’ll always be under the care of our expert multidisciplinary team, and looked after in our state-of-the-art facilities, there’s no better place for you to receive treatment.
