From Spine Fusion Failure to Full Recovery

Surgery team in the operating room .Many patients who visit us have run into previous issues with other doctors and surgeons. They don’t understand what went wrong in the past, or how to fix the issue with the hope of once again living life to its fullest.

Recently, we consulted with a patient dealing with the aftermath of a failed spine fusion surgery. After our first visit, it was clear that the patient required a level one bone fusion to correct the action of the previous surgeon.

Within two weeks, the patient was scheduled for surgery. At our first consultation post-surgery, he noted that 95 percent of the pain was gone. He also said that he was finally back to full activity, without the need to regularly take ibuprofen.

Just because you’ve run into issues with past doctors and surgeons doesn’t mean you’re out of luck. Don’t be shy about seeking a second opinion, as you never know when you’ll find a solution to your problem.
