A cervical Laminectomy is a procedure designed to relieve pressure on the spinal cord or spinal nerve by widening the spinal canal. During a cervical laminectomy, Dr. Raskas will remove a small section of the bony roof of the spine (lamina) to create more space for the nerves and may or may not fuse vertebrae or remove part of the disc.

This procedure can relieve neck strain and stiffness, headaches, dizziness and abnormal sensations such as burning or prickling.
