Cost of Laminectomy

Laminectomy in India can cost you anywhere between USD 5500 to USD 7000.

Laminectomy Procedure

Bony over-growths within the spinal canal narrow down the space putting pressure on the spinal cord and its nerves. This causes severe back pain and discomfort. Laminectomy helps to create space around the spinal canal, which relieves pressure on the spinal cord and its nerves, relieving the patient from the pain. Laminectomy, also known as decompression surgery removes back part of vertebrae that covers spinal canal.

Done under anesthesia, the surgeon makes incision in your back at the affected area to expose your spine. Pulling aside the muscles and upper tissue, the surgeon cuts the target bone, spurs, and ligaments that are compressing nerves. Parts of some spinal bones, as per your medical condition are also removed. In some cases, a spinal fusion (to join two or more vertebrae in the lower back) may also be performed to stabilize spine.

When is Laminectomy required?

  • Severe pain or numbness in the back, arms or legs causing difficulty in standing or walking.
  • Medication and physical therapy fail to respond
  • In case of loss of bowel or bladder control
  • To treat herniated spinal disk

Recovery after Laminectomy

The hospital stay is of about three days while the complete recovery may take over three weeks. You would be recommended physical therapy and other strict precautions by your doctor. Activities like lifting and bending are not allowed for several months after the surgery. You may return to light work, which do not exert pressure on your back in a month.

For those of you who had spinal fusion along with laminectomy the recovery time would extend to over six months.

Note (for foreign patients):

Besides South Asian countries (Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka), every year, India gets thousands of medical tourists from African countries- Nigeria, Kenya, Ethiopia, Sudan, Uganda, Ghana, Somalia,Gambia etc and Middle Eastern countries like Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Oman, UAE, Yemen etc. Hence, if you are a citizen of any of these countries, there is good likelihood that you will be meeting some fellow citizens or same language speakers in the major hospitals in India. Almost all the top hospitals have translators for people of these region. Our patient support team is also well placed to assist you.
