Surgical Treatment of Spinal Stenosis or Narrowing of the Lumbar Canal

Spinal stenosis is a condition where the spinal canal narrows, causing pressure on the spinal cord and nerves. It is usually caused by changes due to degenerative spine disease, such as hypertrophy of the facet joints and thickening of the ligamentum flavum.

As a result of spinal stenosis, one may experience pain in the lumbar region, numbness, and tingling in the legs. There may be a need to take frequent breaks while walking to alleviate symptoms. Depending on the severity of spinal stenosis and the symptoms, surgical intervention may be necessary if conservative treatments such as rehabilitation and physiotherapy have not been effective.

The goal of surgical treatment is to widen the narrowed space in the spinal nerve canal, removing elements that are compressing the nerves. During the surgical procedure, achieving adequate decompression while maintaining the stability of the spine is essential.

The diagnosis and treatment of lumbar canal narrowing are determined by a spine surgeon. Begin your treatment journey with a consultation with a spine surgeon!
