Have you been diagnosed with spinal stenosis? Do you have difficulty walking any long distances without experiencing leg pain? Patients who have not improved after conservative treatment may benefit from surgery. During surgery, the bone spurs and arthritis are removed that place pressure on nerves that affect the legs and buttock region. Dr. Donahoe specializes in lumbar laminectomy surgery and would be happy to evaluate your MRI. Like most spine surgeons, the best results come from removing the pressure on “pinched nerves” in the neck or back.
