http://www.nucleusinc.com/medical-animation This 3D medical animation shows a lumbar laminectomy back surgery procedure. Beginning with an orientation of the lumbar spine, the animation shows boney spurs, a left side disc herniation and boney tumors that impinge the dorsal nerve root, causing pain sensations to flow down the left leg. The surgical correction of this condition requires a portion of the lamina of the vertebra to be cut away, and the herniated disc material to be removed.
