Failed Back Surgery Syndrome – FBSS

Hours: Mon-Fri: 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM
Call Us: (770) 787- 3550

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.

If you had back surgery that was unsuccessful at relieving your pain or symptoms, come see us at Hanowell Spine Clinic. We will devise a treatment plan to give you pain relief and improve your quality of life. We offer injection therapy, spinal cord stimulation and other back pain management solutions at our facility in Covington, GA.

Patient Reviews

My knees were so bad I could hardly walk. After 3 injections no pain.

Dr. Michael Hanowell has relieved my sciatica pain. I was in a wheelchair and after the first epidural I was able to walk. After a recent car accident he put several injections in my back and neck which relieved the pain greatly. He and his staff are very considerate and do everything possible to work with you on relieving your pain.

Mike D.

Dr. Hanowell treated my sciatica pain & I went from being in a wheelchair and barely able to walk to being pain free. He is very professional, caring, and conscientious. He has given me several epidurals and trigger point injections for various issues related to age and injuries and his treatments were very effective. His staff is also very professional.

Pain Healed
