Spinal stenosis surgery

Table of content
Spinal stenosis surgery helps to reopen your spinal canal, the channel in your backbone that houses your spinal cord and other nerves. A doctor does the surgery when the space in the canal narrows because of arthritis, bone spurs, or other problems. When that happens, the nerves can be pinched or squeezed.
We recommend that surgeons add 35 min for each level, 29 min for patients over 65 years, 30 min for women, 132 min for dural tear and 108 min for epidural haematoma.
Full recovery after surgery for spinal stenosis and return to normal activities typically takes three months and possibly longer for spinal fusion, depending partially on the complexity of your surgery and your progress in rehabilitation.
What are the risks of surgery for lumbar spinal stenosis? Problems from anesthesia, A deep infection in the surgical wound, A skin infection, Blood clots, Nerve injury, including weakness, numbness, or paralysis, Tears in the fibrous tissue that covers the spinal cord and the nerve near the spinal cord.
No matter what type of back surgery you're undergoing, and no matter how well controlled your pain is, it's vital that you avoid bending, lifting, and twisting. Bending from the waist, lifting more than 10 pounds, and twisting your torso all put undue pressure on your vulnerable spine. But do not rest too much. Because too much immobility causes the joints to dry out.
Being 65 or older, having other health problems, being overweight or a smoker can put you at above average risk for experiencing complications from spine surgery.
