When a surgeon performs a Gill lamenectomy, will they go in to another level of the spine, e.g. cervical, thoracic, and do a fusion while they are doing so. Please help.

It all depends. Per the definition I was reading they usually do a fusion to prevent late instability. Anytime a gill laminectomy was performed that I've coded, it's always included a fusion.
