Post lumbar laminectomy syndrome is continued back pain following lumbar laminectomy surgery.
During a laminectomy, a surgeon removes part of the vertebrae in the spine, making more room for the spinal cord and spinal nerves. This helps reduce pressure on these nerves, relieving pain. The surgeon then fuses the vertebral bones to stop painful movement.
The purpose of any back surgery is to fix the structural problem causing your back pain. If you have post lumbar laminectomy syndrome, you may continue to feel the same type of pain you had before surgery, a new type of pain, or pain affecting a different part of the spine or body.
Post lumbar laminectomy syndrome may develop from any number of causes. You may continue to have pain if the surgery fails to correct the cause of your pain or if you have nerve damage not identified before your surgery.
Post lumbar laminectomy syndrome may also occur if your spinal fusion doesn’t fuse or you develop a herniated disc in another area of the spine.
