Foraminotomy

Foraminotomy is surgery that widens the opening in your back where nerve roots leave your spinal canal. You may have a narrowing of the nerve opening (foraminal stenosis).

Foraminotomy takes pressure off of the nerve coming out of your spinal column. This reduces any pain you were having. Foraminotomy can be performed on any level of the spine.

You will be asleep and feel no pain (general anesthesia).

During surgery:

The muscles and other tissues are put back in place. The skin is sewn together
