Failed back & neck surgery syndrome refers to patients who have chronic pain following a surgical procedure on the back or neck. Patients experience failed back or neck syndrome when the original problem recurs following surgery, scarring or other complications exacerbate existing conditions, implanted surgical devices have failed, bone and tissue do not heal properly. Patients experiencing sharp or dull pain in the neck, back or leg after surgery may be suffering from this syndrome.
If you believe you are suffering from failed back or neck (surgery) syndrome, make an appoint with Coastal Back and Pain Institute. Our physicians will conduct a thorough examination and will likely request copies of all prior medical records pertaining to your original surgery, rehabilitation and recovery. We may also request that you undergo imaging techniques such as X-ray, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), or computerized tomography (CT scan).
Failed back or neck syndrome is a highly variable condition and is not easily treated. Multiple approaches are often necessary to improve symptoms. These approaches may include non-invasive, minimally invasive and support therapies. Occasionally, corrective surgery is necessary. Request an appointment today.
