Cervical spondylomyelopathy from spinal stenosis is a debilitating disease that often progresses with neurologic deficits in the upper and lower extremities. Spinal stenosis may be treated operatively with expansive open-door laminoplasty. We describe the technique of laminoplasty using suture anchors. Suture anchors may be used to perform laminoplasty in a safe, time-efficient, and reliable manner.
