Foraminotomy is a procedure to relieve nerve compression by removing bone and tissue. One of the advantages of this type of spine surgery is that it can be performed endoscopically, minimizing blood loss and eliminating the need for sedation. Foraminotomy offers relief for many patients suffering from back and spine pain and can be performed as an outpatient procedure at the Spine Center of Excellence.
