Spinal Stenosis Foraminotomy

The spinal stenosis surgery known as a foraminotomy is a surgical procedure in which the foramen, an opening from the cervical spinal canal, is enlarged in order to alleviate pinching of a spinal root nerve. This enlargement is accomplished by removing some of the bone around the foramen. A foraminotomy is performed alongside a laminectomy.

Foraminotomy procedures may treat:

  • Foraminal Stenosis
  • Sciatica
  • Herniated Disc
  • Bulging Disc
  • Pinched Nerve
  • Bone Spurs
  • Arthritis of the Spine
