How It’s Done

When undergoing Lumbar Laminectomy and Discectomy, the surgeon makes a small incision in the lower back to access the affected area of the spine. The lamina (part of the vertebrae) is removed to relieve pressure on the nerves.

The surgeon then carefully removes the herniated or damaged disc, which is causing compression on the spinal nerves. The goal of this procedure is to alleviate pain and restore proper function to the spine.

Dr. Tamir Tawfik is the reason my son is alive and well and on his way back to a full recovery. You see my son Logan suffered a severe spinal injury during a high school football game this year and by many accounts should be paralyzed from the neck down, but due to the swift expert actions of Dr. Tawfik my son is a walking miracle.

My family will forever be thankful for his professional and caring approach.

Dr. Tamir Tawfik is an excellent physician. I can't say enough good things about my husbands experience with the surgery Dr. Tawfik did. Not only did he do an excellent job on my husbands surgery, but he is compassionate, caring and really takes the time explaining to our family what he was doing and what to expect.

My husband and my entire family would agree he is an excellent neurosurgeon, and would highly recommend him.

Right from the start Dr. Tawfik had my best interests out front. His minimally invasive approach was both welcome and effective. The day of the surgery I had improvements I never expected so fast.

Yasmine was just great with getting everything set up so I had little to no per-surgery stress. I can't recommend them strongly enough.

Watch for Signs of Infection

Incision Care

Make sure to keep your surgical incision clean and dry to prevent infection.

Gradually Increase Physical Activity

Listen to your body and move as you feel comfortable. Begin by walking three times a day and try to increase your distance.

Conditions That Can Be Treated by Spinal Cord Stimulator Surgery


A herniated disc happens when the soft, gel-like center of a spinal disc pushes through a tear in the tough outer layer. This can irritate nearby nerves and lead to symptoms like pain, numbness, or weakness in the area supplied by the affected nerve.


Spinal stenosis is a condition where the spaces within the spine narrow, putting pressure on the spinal cord and nerves. This can cause pain, numbness, weakness, or tingling in the arms, legs, or back, and may worsen with activity.
