What Causes My Pain from Failed Back Surgery Syndrome (FBSS)?

Failed back surgery syndrome is a fairly common experience of persistent back or leg pain following spinal surgery. When spine surgery has not alleviated your original problem or, even worse, has created other, more significant problems, then the problem is failed back surgery syndrome. Unfortunately for many patients, disastrous results do occur after back surgery. Failed back surgery syndrome occurs when the fixing of one problem winds up causing another problem to appear in another area of your spine or fails to address the underlying core spinal issue.

Your back is a phenomenally complicated series of interlocking mechanisms, and for patients who have had incomplete or inadequate back surgery operations, the results can be debilitating and discouraging. Occasionally operating on the wrong level occurs, or there can be a surgical failure to recognize an extruded or sequestered disc fragment. Recent studies suggest that the main reason for failed back surgery is technical error during surgery. We offer high quality, individualized pain management services for patients suffering from pain brought about by failed back surgery syndrome (FBSS).

How Will You Diagnose and Treat My Pain from Failed Back Surgery Syndrome?

Failed back surgery syndrome (FBSS), refers to chronic back and leg pain that occurs after back or spinal surgery, and it is characterized as a chronic pain syndrome. The likelihood of failed back surgery syndrome increases with the degree of invasiveness of the spinal surgery that was performed. It has been estimated that up to 40 percent of patients who undergo traditional open back surgery experience failed back surgery syndrome. Common symptoms of FBSS include dull and aching pain in your back or legs, as well as abnormal sensations such as sharp, pricking, or stabbing pain in your extremities.
