Failed Back Surgery Syndrome/ Post-Laminectomy Syndrome

Failed Back Surgery Syndrome/Post-Laminectomy Syndrome

Back or spine surgery may not always be the best option to address pain; sometimes, the pain just doesn't stop after surgery. Sometimes the worst happens and the pain can become worse. Post-laminectomy syndrome is a generalized term for an unsuccessful laminectomy or another type of back surgery.

Back pain has various causes, including post-laminectomy syndrome, injuries, sprains, strains, disc degeneration, radiculopathy (nerve root compression), sciatica, spondylolisthesis, spinal stenosis, scoliosis, osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, and sacroiliitis.

Post-laminectomy syndrome or failed back surgery syndrome can result in back pain that is more intense and unrelenting than before the operation. It can also cause intermittent sharp sensations or a persistent dull ache. The pain can radiate into the legs or feet. Back pain can make it difficult to move or even relax. We can help with both chronic and acute back pain.
