Hemilaminectomy is a surgical procedure that’s often used in combination with other surgeries to resolve a spinal condition. Your spine is made up of bones, ligaments and discs that give you the support to twist and bend, while protecting your spinal cord. But you can develop spinal problems due to wear and tear or because of car accidents or sports-related injuries. Spine damage can cause intense pain in your neck, shoulders or lower back. It can even affect your arms, hands, legs or feet. Find an expert spine specialist like Dr. Branko Skovrlj at the NU-Spine medical facility in Edison, NJ. He has the latest surgical tools to find the cause of your pain and take care of it, even if it takes a hemilaminectomy. Call today to book your appointment.

What Is a Hemilaminectomy?

Hemilaminectomy is a surgical technique for relieving extremely painful spine problems. When your vertebrae pinches or restricts your spinal cord or nerve roots, a hemilaminectomy may be the answer. But since not all spine surgeons perform this procedure, turn to neurosurgeon Dr. Branko Skovrlj at NU-Spine, The Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery Institute in Edison, NJ when you require a hemilaminectomy.

Your spine acts as the foundation of your central nervous system, as well as the main structure of your skeletal system. When pain flares up on any part of your spine, it can quickly become chronic and debilitating. A hemilaminectomy literally means half a laminectomy, and it involves removing half as much bone from your spine.

Since an early diagnosis means earlier treatment and better results, visit a spine specialist at the first sign of a back problem. Dr. Skovrlj offers all the latest surgical technology, including minimally invasive spine surgery for:

  • A faster recovery period
  • Smaller incisions, which means less bleeding
  • A lower risk of infection
  • Less disruption of your muscles, nerves and other soft tissue
