Lumbar Spine Injuries with Surgical Laminotomy and Discectomy
Lumbar Spine Injuries with Surgical Laminotomy and Discectomy

This exhibit begins with one sagittal (side cut-away) view of the lumbar spine illustrating the pre-operative condition. This image clearly reveals the large disc herniation and osteophytes at L5-S1 as well as the smaller herniation at the L4-5 level. Also, one horizontal cross section view of the L5-S1 interspace is included to show how the disc herniation and osteophyte protrude out toward the left causing compression of the left exiting nerve root at this level. Also, four key steps of the surgical decompression procedure are illustrated in graphic detail.
