Summary

In this procedure, the provider removes a portion of the vertebra called the lamina and places a permanent plate/paddle electrode in the epidural space, or area between the dura membrane and the wall of the vertebra for spinal cord stimulation. This procedure is done when a larger area of coverage is necessary or to reduce the risk of movement of the electrode array. Providers perform this procedure to control pain and spasms.
