Neep INPUT!!! Laminectomy, microdiscetomy and facetecomy
PLEASE HELP! I have been informed by my doctor that for my nerve root decompression (L4-L5) he proposed a wide unilateral laminectomy, microdiscetomy and facetecomy followed by placement of L4-L5 screws on one side (due to scar tissue from initial surgery). This is expected to decompress the nerve root and restore my ankle flexion . Can anyone provide their experience with this procedure or look into arthroscopic? I've seen adds for different institutes but can anyone provide their experience...good and bad.
