Surgery For Spinal Canal Stenosis

Spinal canal stenosis can be due to prolapsed intervertebral discs/degenerative spinal disorders,

spinal tumours or tonsillar herniaion in Chiari Malformations leading to compressive myelopathy and neurological deficits.

After informed consent and necessary pre-op preparation patient is taken to operaion theatre and given local anaesthesia. Only some cases may require general anaesthesia.

Spinal decompression is done by either removing the prolapsed discs, spinal tumour or herniated cerebellar tonsils.

Patient is shifted to ward for further recovery. Improvement is generally gradual with physiotherapy and proper rehabilitation programs.

Further deterioration in neurological status is seen in extremely rare cases.
