Failed Back Syndrome is no failure of your back’s own fault. This name is misleading. Failed Back Syndrome is simply the symptoms felt after an unsuccessful back surgery. Our patients at Celebration Orthopaedics rarely see this so-called syndrome, thanks to our very own expert spine specialist. Need an orthopedic doctor near me? Call us today!
Why (And When) Back Surgery Fails
Spinal surgery is a complex process. Some procedures are more successful than others, as it is easier to ensure where the true root of pain is and just what it takes to alleviate that pain. Other procedures are more unpredictable. So when should you risk back surgery and when should you hesitate?
Spinal surgery is usually done to accomplish one of two goals: to decompress a pinched nerve root, or stabilize a painful joint. Most often, when this does not work, it is because the wrong joint or nerve was not targeted, failing to relieve the pain.
While this on occasion may be a result of a negligent surgeon, most often this is simply due to the unpredictability of certain procedures. For example, when treating a herniated disc that causes leg pain, the success rate is much higher than treating a herniated disc that causes lower back pain.
The solution to this is, if possible, to stick to only the most reliable surgical procedures, and try non-surgical or minimally invasive procedures first to help ease the pain. At Celebration Orthopaedics, our spinal specialist can perform all of these treatments and beyond!
