What Causes Failed Back Surgery Syndrome?
Many individuals who undergo spine surgery experience excellent results. The success rate of most spine surgeries is about 90%. When the surgery does not provide a positive result for the patient, failed back surgery has occurred. Failed back surgery can be caused by misdiagnosis, re-injury during the recovery period or a poorly performed surgery. In cases of failed back surgery it is important to find the exact source of the continuing symptoms. Once the exact source of the back pain has been found, treatment for failed spine surgery symptoms can be sought. As a spine surgeon, Dr. Braxton offers non-surgical and advanced, minimally invasive, surgical treatments to help patients suffering from failed back surgery.
