C4-6 Posterior Cervical Hemilaminectomy with Bilateral Foraminotomies
This exhibit depicts C4-6 posterior hemilaminectomies with bilateral foraminotomies for neural decompression. The procedure begins with a posterior midline incision and exposure of the C4-6 lamina. The lamina of C4, C5, and C6 are partially removed with a drill, allowing access to the neural foramen. Bilateral foraminotomies are then performed to decompress the exiting cervical nerve roots.
