I have been hoping to hear from people who have had laminoplasy and haven't had much luck. I hope this means that they are all cured and no longer visiting the spine health forum...

I am 35 yo diagnosed with myelopathy. Congenital c-spine stenosis with disk herniation. Putting off surgery for 2 yrs now but getting worse. I decided on Laminoplasy procedure. I was hoping someone has had this procedure...
Wanted to know if I will be able to be active (ski, play sports) or will I feel neck weakness or limitation after the procedure. I met another person who had this done and feels great. Is this the norm or was he lucky. I know outcomes very tremendously, but in general, what kind of life after laminoplasty can a relatively young guy, who wants to be very active again, expect.

Any input greatly appreciated.



  • I don't know the answer to your question, but hang in there, someone will answer you soon. People read lots of messages, but if they don't have an answer sometimes don't say anything. Have you read the info about the procedure on this site? I too have stenosis, so would be interested in the answer. I have a one level fusion, but level above degenerating also, with stenosis. Good luck.
