If symptoms are particularly painful or debilitating, your expert team of neurosurgeons may recommend the following:
- Microsurgical excision to remove the entire cyst
- Laminectomy (in addition to removal of the cyst), in which a small portion of the vertebrae is removed to ease nerve compression
- Surgical fusion, which fuses a portion of the spine together to help stabilize the bones
