Failed Back & Neck Surgery

What is Failed Back & Neck Surgery?

Failed Back & Neck Surgery Syndrome (FBSS) refers to a condition where patients continue to experience persistent pain or develop new pain following spinal surgery. This situation can arise due to a variety of factors, including incomplete removal of the original issue, development of scar tissue, recurrent disc herniation, or spinal structures becoming destabilized post-surgery. FBSS is a challenging condition, both physically and emotionally, for those affected.

Symptoms of Failed Back & Neck Surgery

Symptoms of FBSS can vary widely but generally include chronic pain in the back, neck, arms, or legs, depending on the area originally operated on. Other symptoms may involve stiffness, reduced mobility, numbness, tingling, or weakness in the limbs. The severity of these symptoms can range from mild discomfort to debilitating pain, significantly impacting daily activities and quality of life.

Treatment for Failed Back & Neck Surgery

The treatment approach for FBSS at The Spine Center is highly individualized, recognizing the complexity of the condition. Dr. Saqib Siddiqui focuses on a thorough evaluation to determine the underlying cause of the continued pain. Treatment options may include non-surgical interventions like targeted pain management strategies to alleviate symptoms. In some cases, corrective surgery might be considered as an option to address the root cause of the pain, such as spinal instability or nerve compression.
