Failed Back Surgery

Revision spine surgery is surgery performed in certain patients to correct the problems of earlier spine surgery. Revision surgery is indicated in patients with chronic pain even after surgery. Other factors indicated for revision spine surgery include:

  • Scar tissue formation around the incision
  • Unsuccessful surgery
  • Surgery at wrong site
  • Surgery in non-eligible candidates
  • Improper diagnosis
  • Post-surgical complications

Failed back syndrome or failed back surgery is a condition used to describe persistent back pain following back surgeries.

The goal of revision spine surgery is to reduce pain and resume normal activities. The revision spine surgery is performed in certain conditions such as re-herniation of a disc, infection, pseudoarthorsis, hardware failure, non-surgery related spine degeneration, flat back syndrome, instability, or adjacent segment degeneration.

Revision spine surgery can be performed using minimally invasive technique where surgery is done by making small incisions. This method causes less damage to muscles and conjunctive tissue surrounding the spine. Laser scalpel will be used to repair the damaged tissues which involve cutting away broken, malformed, or damaged tissue.

Procedures intended to repair previous interventions include laminotomy, foraminotomy, facet thermal ablation, spinal fusion, and microdisectomy. Rehabilitation after revision surgery includes exercises to harden the weakened muscles in the affected areas.
