Hi all. I just stumbled upon this site and am glad I did. I am an 81 year old geezer. I have a Laminotomy scheduled. I see an abundance of information about Laminectomy but none pertaining to Laminotomy the supposidly much less evasive operation.

Just hoping that someone has underwent a Laminotomy and can hopefully tell me about the recovery time,pain,driving my automobile etc. Thank you


  • Could you possibly mean "Laminectomy?" In that, they take part of your lamina (bone on your spine) out to take the pressure off nerves.
