    Post Do they alway have to do a laminectomy with a discectomy????

    I was wondering, do they alway have to do a laminectomy when they do a discectomy? I am having a discectomy Friday and he never mentioned a laminectomy but I always notice that almost everyone who has had a discectomy on this board has the laminectomy thrown in there! I would know if I needed this too, right?? He never mentioned this.
    What is the laminectomy used for?

    2000: Tore and ruptured L4 L5 & L5 S1-it finally got better after about a year. Did really well for about a year.
    June 2002: Had a relapse and tore/ruptured disc again.
    Now I'm 14 months into it and the pain is still there.
    Can't deal with it anymore so I'm having a discectomy in Sept. Hoping and praying that it takes care of my problems!!
