Lumbar Laminectomy
I did a lot of research before coming to Mexico for such a major surgery. When I found Dr. Mendoza and read about his experience around the world with minimally invasive hip replacement, I felt fairly sure he was the surgeon I wanted for my procedure. I then made contact with his assistant, and from that point forward, I knew I had made the right decision. She and Dr. Mendoza are warm and friendly, as well as professional and quick to respond. After viewing my x-rays, Dr. Mendoza told me things about my hip, and why I had developed my problem, things my American doctors had never bothered to explain. My American doctors always treated me as if they didn't want to be bothered and were trying to get rid of me as soon as possible. My first visit with Dr. Mendoza lasted 45 minutes, and he treated me as if he had all day to spend, answering any questions I had. My hospital room was a beautiful suite, where my husband had a nice leather couch to sleep on. The nursing staff was very knowledgeable and prompt to respond if I needed anything. After leaving the hospital, I had a lot of pain on my first night, and Dr. Mendoza called my husband and prescribed a heavier medication. It says on his letterhead in Spanish "house calls"! I can't say enough good about my experience with Dr. Oscar Mendoza and his staff. Thank you, Dr. Mendoza!

We were recommended to Dr. Mendoza by Dr. Torres in Mazatlan as a highly skilled and meticulous surgeon. I had waited in pain for close to 3years in Canada for treatment ; The surgery was completed 2 days after arriving in Guadalajara. The surgery was perfect and there were no significant pain levels. The follow up after surgery items ei. walker, ambulance trip back to our hotel, and daily visit by the physiotherapist were all organized by Dr. Mendoza's professional staff. This is medical care at its best and incredible value for the price. I see a golf course in my future.

Меня зовут Бегенч я из Туркменистана. В июне 2016 у среднего сына была травма колена. Повредил во время тренировки по футболу. Он у меня планирует заниматься им профессионально. Наши Ашкабадские врачи предложили оперировать но после нее сын пог бы позабыть о спорте. В итоге решили ехать в Турцию. Ромой подсказали нам родственники, которые были уже у них на лечении. После предварительной операции врач тоже пришел к мнению проведения оперции но в отличии колег из Туркменистана он обещал что операция (ортроскопия ) никак не повлияет на его будующую карьеру. Слово врачи сдержали. правда понадобилась двух месячная физиотерапия но результатом мы однозначно довольны. Бегенч Атамурадов

Nas djecak Hamza je bio bezbrizan i kao vecina djece igrao je fudbal sa drugarima. Nazalost jedan dan je dosao sa povredom i tada je sve krenulo naopako. Vodili smo ga u bolnicu u Sarajevo i rekli su nam da oni ne smiju izvesti tu operaciju, na vrhuncu ocaja smo saznali za Romoy. Imam samo rijeci hvale za njih, ni jedne sekunde nas nisu ostavili same i pruzili su nam neogranicenu podrsku. Zahvaljujuci vama nas Hamza opet bezbrizno trckara sa drugarima. Hvala Vam !

What is Lumbar Laminectomy?

A Lumbar Laminectomy is an orthopedic and neurological surgical operation performed to treat Spinal Stenosis, which is the narrowing of the spinal canal.

 

During a laminectomy, an incision is made in the lower portion of the back (lumbar), and a portion of bone, called the lamina, is removed from one or more vertebrae, relieving pain and pressure on the nerve roots and the spinal cord caused by Lumbar Stenosis.

 

A Good Candidate for Lumbar Laminectomy

A surgical advisor will be delighted to help you find a leading expert in Spinal Surgery to consult with. Your surgeon will carry out a thorough evaluation of your condition and provide you with a comprehensive explanation of the most appropriate surgical solution.

 

Our listed Expert Consultant Orthopaedic and Neuro Surgeons are most carefully selected and recommended because they understand the importance of the decision you are making when contemplating complex spinal surgery and because of their specialist Spinal Surgery expertise. Throughout your consultation you be encouraged to ask as many questions as you wish and to take your time in making a decision to proceed with any recommended treatment.

 

To ensure that patients are comfortable with any recommendations or advice given in their consultation, all patients are asked to take time and reflect on all the information they have received. If for whatever reason you are still not sure about the best course of action and wish to have further discourse with your surgeon, you will not be expected to pay for a second consultation appointment.

 

Lumbar Laminectomy Procedure

First, a 2-5 inch long incision is made along the back, the left and right back muscles are disconnected from the lamina on both sides at different levels. Second, the lamina is removed (laminectomy) allowing the nerve roots to be visible. The facet joints, which are directly above the nerve roots, may be trimmed to give the nerve roots more space.
