DRHC Dubai Spinal Surgery


Foraminotomy is a surgical procedure used to treat nerve compression in the spine, specifically in the area where the spinal nerves exit the spinal canal. This compression often occurs due to conditions such as herniated discs, bone spurs, or narrowing of the spinal canal (spinal stenosis).

During a foraminotomy, the surgeon removes a small portion of bone or tissue to widen the passageway (foramen) through which the spinal nerves travel as they exit the spinal canal. By enlarging this space, pressure on the nerves is relieved, reducing pain, numbness, tingling, and weakness that may be caused by nerve compression.

Foraminotomy is typically performed using minimally invasive techniques, which means smaller incisions, less damage to surrounding tissues, and faster recovery compared to traditional open surgery. It's an effective option for patients experiencing symptoms related to nerve compression in the spine and can help improve overall quality of life.foraminotomy_illustration
