FAILED BACK SURGERY

What is Failed Back Surgery?

Failed back surgery or Failed back surgery syndrome (also called FBSS, or failed back syndrome) is not actually a syndrome. It is a generalized term that is often used to describe the condition of patients who have not had a successful result with their back surgery or Spine Institute and continue to experience pain after surgery.

What causes a Failed Back Surgery?

There are several other potential causes of a failed surgery, such as failure to fuse and/or implant failure, or a transfer lesion to another level after a spine fusion, lumbar decompression back surgery considerations (such as recurrent spinal stenosis or disc herniation). It can also be caused by Scar tissue considerations (such as epidural fibrosis, which refers to a formation of scar tissue around the nerve root) and Postoperative rehabilitation (continued pain from a secondary pain generator).

HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE A FAILED BACK SURGERY?

After your initial consultation at our clinic and a comprehensive physical examination, it will be determined whether diagnostic imaging is required. Often, MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) scans, or in some cases, CT (Computerized Tomography) scans help to confirm the diagnosis and elucidate the nature and extent of the underlying problem. Simply put, if the same symptoms the patient was experiencing prior to the failed back surgery are still present or even worse, you have a failed back surgery.
