FORAMINOTOMY NEW JERSEY
A foraminotomy is a decompression procedure that widens the space in your back where the nerve root leaves the spinal canal.
WHAT IS A FORAMINOTOMY?
A foraminotomy is minimally invasive and involves creating more space in your back by removing bone spurs, thickened ligaments, and unnecessary debris.

WHO CAN GET A FORAMINOTOMY?
Disorders that can cause nerve root compression include spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, a bulging or herniated intervertebral disc, bone spurs (osteophytes), and spondylosis (spinal osteoarthritis). If you have a severe case of one or more of these conditions, your doctor may recommend a spinal decompression surgery, such as a foraminotomy. Spinal decompression surgery creates more space around the nerve, which may relieve pain.
