Failed Back Surgery Treatment

failed back surgery

Back pain is a common complaint, but severe back pain can be debilitating.  In the most severe cases, back surgery may be used as a last resort. Because of this, failed back surgery can be devastating not only to a patient’s physical well-being, but also to their mental state. Unfortunately, Failed Back Surgery Syndrome, or FBSS, is not uncommon.  It causes symptoms that include chronic leg pain, chronic back pain, joint instability, muscle weakness, numbness and tingling.  In some cases, patients actually experience a worsening of the symptoms for which the surgery was initially performed. A patient with a failed spinal stenosis surgery, for instance, might end up suffering worse spinal stenosis symptoms than before having the surgery.
