Some degree of pain and discomfort is normal after back surgery, especially depending on the type of surgery you have, whether you experience complications, and your overall health. But when pain and dysfunction persist or get worse after back surgery, it should be evaluated.
Post laminectomy syndrome or failed back surgery syndrome (FBSS) is a common type of post-surgery pain. According to peer-reviewed research, post laminectomy syndrome or FBSS may occur in about half of patients who have laminectomies.
At Integrated Pain Solutions in Ohio, we understand that spinal surgery is sometimes necessary. But if it doesn’t relieve your back or leg pain, a second surgery may not help. Fortunately, there are alternatives to repeat surgery. Call us at (614) 383-6450 to find out how we can help.
Some underlying conditions that may increase the risk of FBSS include:
Treatment for FBSS must also include treatments for any associated health conditions.
If you have post laminectomy syndrome or FBSS, your treatment will depend on several factors. How intense is your discomfort? What contributing factors are making the pain worse? Based on a thorough diagnosis and personal history assessment, we can help you clarify these questions and initiate a unique treatment plan for you. Many of our patients with post-surgery pain respond well to minimally invasive techniques.
