Many patients find themselves grappling with disappointment and persistent pain after undergoing back surgery, as the promises of relief turn into a frustrating reality of failed outcomes. Despite the initial hopes for improvement, they face the daunting challenge of navigating life post-surgery with unresolved issues and lingering discomfort.
Transforming Failed Surgeries into Success Stories
Are you living with persistent back pain even after undergoing a surgical procedure to address the issue? You may be experiencing a condition known as "failed back surgery," and you're not alone. At the Center for the Functional Restoration of the Spine (CFRS), we understand the considerable challenges posed by this condition, and our expert team is here to help you overcome them.
Understanding Failed Back Surgery
Failed back surgery, or post-laminectomy syndrome, is a complex condition characterized by the persistence or recurrence of back and leg pain following spinal surgery. While back surgery is intended to alleviate pain and improve functionality, there are instances where the desired outcomes are not achieved. This condition can be disheartening, but the CFRS team specializes in addressing the unique challenges associated with failed back surgery.
Potential Complications Leading to Failed Back Surgery
Several complications may arise after back surgery, prompting patients to seek specialized care at CFRS. Some common complications include:
In cases of spinal fusion, bones may fail to grow together or heal properly, resulting in a condition known as pseudarthrosis.
Our team is experienced in addressing pseudarthrosis through revision spine surgery, offering procedures that encourage proper bone fusion and stability.
Adjacent Level Disease
Degeneration of discs or facet joints directly above or below a spinal fusion site can occur, leading to adjacent level disease.
The CFRS team employs advanced diagnostic techniques to identify adjacent level disease and recommends tailored treatments, such as revision spine surgery or more minimally invasive procedures.
Spine problems like degenerative disc disease, herniated discs, and spinal stenosis may recur after surgery, either in the same area or a different part of the spine.
Our expert team conducts thorough evaluations to determine the cause of recurring conditions, devising comprehensive treatment plans that may involve revision spine surgery alongside alternative interventions.
The screws, rods, plates, and other hardware used during surgery to repair the spine can come loose, leading to hardware failure.
CFRS specializes in addressing hardware failure through meticulous surgical procedures, ensuring the stability and effectiveness of spinal implants.
Post-surgery, a spinal deformity may continue to worsen, causing new back pain.
Our team is skilled in diagnosing and treating progressive deformities, offering personalized solutions to alleviate pain and restore spinal alignment.
Comprehensive Rehabilitation Support
CFRS emphasizes not just surgical intervention but also comprehensive rehabilitation support to ensure a holistic approach to your recovery.
