Failed Back Syndrome
In many circumstances, patients who have undergone prior surgery receive only temporary relief, and surgical procedures (typically involving fusion and instrumentation) can lead to adjacent accelerated degenerative changes of the spine. If these changes are not carefully observed they can often be overlooked, resulting in ineffective pain management. Poor treatment can lead to escalating use of narcotics, insufficient diagnoses, and ineffective therapy procedures. If you are experiencing little to no improvement with an aggressive pain management regimen, or if you have a history of prior spine surgery, even multiple complex operations, you deserve a fresh outlook on treatment options.
