Failed Back Syndrome

Living with back pain or injuries can seriously harm your overall quality of life. You finally receive surgery to alleviate your pain, but then it doesn’t work. Even after your full recovery, you feel little to no improvement in your situation. This is what we called failed back syndrome.
However, there is a way out. At Yashar Neurosurgery, we are committed to providing maximum relief from your symptoms through effective and cutting-edge procedures. The first step to a life without pain and discomfort is a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Yashar.

What Is Failed Back Syndrome?

Failed back surgery syndrome (also called FBSS, or failed back syndrome) is not actually a syndrome. At least, it is not a term for a disease or illness that you acquire. Instead, it is a term used for failure of relief of pain after a back (spine) surgery.
FBSS can be described as the persistence of back or leg pain following back or spine surgery. Back surgery does not technically get rid of pain, but rather it simply changes the anatomy of the spine. This in turn will hopefully help alleviate and eliminate what is most likely causing the back pain.

How to Avoid Failed Back Syndrome?

No surgery has a 100% success rate. However, there are many factors that go into determining how likely your surgery will be a success. The first is obviously the skill of your surgeon. Only a board-certified surgeon with years of experience will be more likely to provide relief from your symptoms with successful surgery. Since the spine is so complex, it takes a truly expert hand to deliver satisfying results. Dr. Yashar used his years of experience to select the best surgery option for you. And then takes every effort to ensure it goes smoothly.
The best way one can avoid having results that are less than desirable is to ensure the surgery to be performed has a high success rate. Performing a surgery that does not have a high success rate may yield undesirable results.
A patient that has had a back surgery that did not provide relief will have a formal consultation with Dr. Yashar to address all of the options available. Dr. Yashar may recommend a spinal cord stimulator, which sends signals to the spinal cord to control pain.

What Surgeries Can Results in FBSS?

Any surgery for your back can potentially not deliver the results you want. Whether it is because the surgeon did not provide the right treatment or simply could not achieve the results you need, you might not feel the relief you need. Though some procedures have higher odds of success than others, there is always the chance you might not have gotten the right one.

Should I Get Another Surgery?

We understand it can be challenging to commit to another surgery after the first one failed you. The idea of another hospital trip and a long recovery period can certainly be intimidating. But at Yashar Neurosurgery, we commit ourselves to creating a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere every step of the way.
We want you to be excited about the chance to finally find relief from your back pain. With each step of the process, Dr. Yashar ensures you are fully informed. You will never be in the dark about any aspect of your procedure and how we will treat it.
