Potential Risks of Laminectomy Surgery
While laminectomy can provide relief from certain spinal conditions, it's important to be aware of the potential risks and complications associated with the procedure. Some of these risks include:
- Infection: Surgical procedures carry the risk of infection at the incision site or within the spinal canal.
- Nerve Damage: Given the intricate network of nerves in the spinal region, there is a chance of unintentional nerve damage during surgery, which can lead to persistent pain or other sensory issues.
- Scar Tissue Formation: Surgery can result in the formation of scar tissue, potentially contributing to discomfort or complications.
- Limited Mobility During Recovery: Recovery from laminectomy surgery often involves a period of limited mobility and activity, which can impact daily life and routines.
It's important to discuss these potential risks with a healthcare provider when considering laminectomy as a treatment option.
