Laminectomy

A Laminectomy is surgical operation performed as a treatment for patients suffering from Spinal Stenosis. While typically occurring in a hospital setting, the administration of a Laminectomy is considered a fairly invasive medical procedure due to the nature of open back surgery and the removal of bone. Recovery time for a laminectomy can be up to six months.

At Deuk Spine Institute, we have found a way to eliminate the need for traditional Laminectomies through the use of minimally invasive laser surgery which drastically increases success rates, reduces complications, and  decreases the amount of time patients spend in recovery.

What is a Laminectomy?

Often performed alongside a Foraminotomy and/or traditional spinal fusion, a Laminectomy is essentially the removal of the lamina or compressive matter in the spine that may be damaging the spinal cord or spinal nerves. Typically involving a large incision and the moving of muscle, skin and ligaments, Laminectomy surgery allows doctors to relieve pressure on the spinal cord or nerves by removing the lamina bone or bone spurs that are causing Spinal Stenosis. The problem with this method is that it requires the risk of collateral damage to soft tissues in the area in order to reach the problematic region.

Here at the Deuk Spine Institute we have developed a surgical method using an endoscope and specially designed microscopic laser that allows for a small incision, between 4mm-7mm, to grant access to the target matter without damaging nearby soft tissues.

Known as Deuk Laser Disc Repair, we are able to create a tiny incision less than the size of a dime, and locate the offending obstacles in the spine and remove them using fine pulses of energy from our minimally invasive laser. This in effect allows the body to naturally repair itself quickly without the need for implants or long recovery times.

What are the Risks and Outcomes?

Through the use of Deuk Laser Disc Repair, we have helped revolutionize treatment of lumbar spinal stenosis and other conditions in the spine by increasing success rates and decreasing the relative risk of complication. At other spine surgery centers in the nation, a average complication rate ranging from 5-20% is typical. To us here at Deuk Spine Institute, that is unacceptable. Imagine a group of 100 people suffering from a debilitating spine condition who choose to undergo medical treatment. Now think about how somewhere between 5 and 20 of those patients will experience pain and difficulty after surgery. Those are not necessarily comforting figures when seeking treatment.

[viewmedica openthis="A_502e5315"]Our Laminectomy alternative, Deuk Laser Disc Repair, is a proven spine surgery that provides patients a safe and efficient way to fix problems in the neck or back. In fact, our current risk of complication to date is less than .5%, or less than one person in every 100 being treated. What is even better are our industry leading success rates. On average, Deuk Spine Institute patients undergoing Deuk Laser Disc Repair experience a 95% resolution of pain following surgery. Other spine surgery centers in the nation? While varying greatly, their average is a bit of a gamble at somewhere around a 50% resolution of pain.

How Long is Recovery?

Recovery times for patients receiving treatment at any of our Deuk Spine Institute locations in Florida are some of the best in the nation. Averaging less than a week before returning to work, Deuk Spine patients are able to receive treatment for their spine condition and return to the workplace as soon as the next day. In fact, other patients who received a traditional Laminectomy accompanied by spinal fusion typically experience at least 1 week in the hospital followed by up to 6 months of recovery before returning to work. In the modern workplace, it is hard to get clearance for half of a year off of work without returning to a difficult work environment. That is why when faced with a hospital stay longer than our total recovery time, most patients chose the safer and more effective treatment with Deuk Laser Disc Repair.
