Your father is suffering from degenerative spinal disease with lumbar canal stenosis. He can get good relief of his symptoms by surgery over his lower back - laminectomy. Kindly take your father to a neurosurgeon.
Hope this helps, please feel free to discuss further.
Patient replied :
is there any risk for doing laminectomy surgery ?
he is a diabetic patient and he is nw 60.
Dr. can you recommend good hospital for doing this surgery in kerala.
how many days will be taken for the recovery?
what will be the cost for doing surgery?
if treatment is not done will it cause paralyze?
The risk to this surgery is almost the same as any other surgery. 60 yrs is not an issue. Diabetes should be controlled before surgery.
He should be all well in 7 to 10 days maximum.
If the surgery is properly carried out he should not be paralysed.
