It is unfortunate when invasive back surgery is ineffective in relieving back pain and mobility problems. Back or spine surgery is usually only recommended when conservative treatments are ineffective, and surgery is warranted to offer relief. When back surgery does not relieve the original pain or results in other pain symptoms, it is termed failed back surgery syndrome, or FBSS. At Hanowell Spine Clinic, our team of spine specialists offer failed back surgery (FBSS) treatment at our clinic in Covington, GA.
There are many reasons that back surgery may not produce the desired pain relief results. Diagnosing the source of back pain is complex, as many spinal conditions cause similar pain and mobility issues. If the surgery performed addressed one spinal issue but other problems also were contributing to the symptoms, the procedure may not produce the relief desired. It is also possible that the surgery resulted in nerve irritation or other issues that cause new symptoms to emerge. Failed back surgery syndrome can be frustrating for the patient, but there are FBSS treatments that offer relief.
Managing Back Pain After Surgery
At Hanowell Spine Clinic, we do not perform open back surgery, but we do offer failed back surgery syndrome (FBSS) treatment. Many patients with FBSS are unwilling or unable to undergo additional surgeries, but they still want relief from their pain. We offer many effective diagnostic and treatment options that can help those with FBSS find relief. Our spinal specialists will perform diagnostic testing to determine the cause of the pain and offer a treatment plan using conservative treatment options to provide relief for patients with FBSS.
