What is Failed Back Surgery Syndrome?

As the number of spinal surgeries in the United States continues to increase, failed procedures are also becoming more common. Known as Failed Back Surgery Syndrome (FBSS), this poses a serious problem to the patient.

There are many challenges associated with FBSS, including the fact that a diagnosis does not always come quickly. Instead, a variety of additional procedures may be performed, all of which could cause additional harm.

Believe it or not, some people undergo several surgeries, all without ever receiving the relief they were originally seeking.

Fortunately, we have a system in place for treating FBSS. It all starts with a consultation during which you are examined and your options discussed. From there, it’s time to implement a plan to put your pain in the past once and for all.

Some of the most common treatment options include physical therapy, epidural injection, and of course, corrective surgery. Furthermore, spinal cord stimulation is a treatment plan that is growing in popularity. For many, this is the best way to achieve immediate results.

As one of the most complex back injuries, you don’t want to wait any longer to receive treatment if you feel you’re suffering from FBSS.
