A nerve can be trapped or compressed by excessive pressure of tissue, bone or a disc. Surgery for the trapped nerve basically involves decompression by removing the tissue compressing the nerve. The two most common types of precures are a foraminotomy and a laminotomy. The foramin where a nerve root exits the spinal column is widened to relieve pressure on the nerve. During a laminotomy, part of the lamina (thin bony plates between the facet joints, is removed to open the spinal canal, which then gives the surgeon access to remove pressure on your spinal cord or nerve by removing it.
