What to Do After Back Surgery Fails

When Surgery Fails

When a patient undergoes back surgery with the expectation of relief from chronic pain or other issues, the outcome can be devastating if the surgery fails to bring the desired results. In such cases, it is important to explore alternative treatment options to address the underlying issues and improve the patient’s quality of life. 

BEST Health System offers a comprehensive approach to patient care, including cutting-edge therapies and surgical techniques, to ensure the best possible outcomes for patients who have undergone failed back surgery.

After a failed back surgery, it is crucial to consult with the experts at the BEST Health System to undergo a thorough evaluation of the patient’s condition and review the previous surgical procedures. 

This evaluation may include diagnostic tests such as MRIs, CT scans, and X-rays to determine the root cause of the failed surgery and develop a customized treatment plan tailored to the patient’s specific needs. 

The team of specialists at the BEST Health System will work collaboratively to provide a multidisciplinary approach to care, incorporating pain management, and other therapies to address the underlying issues and improve the patient’s overall function and quality of life.

In cases where traditional treatments are not effective in addressing the issues related to failed back surgery, the BEST Health System offers advanced surgical options such as spinal cord stimulator treatment. This cutting-edge technique is designed to provide targeted relief and promote healing while minimizing the risk of complications and improving long-term outcomes for patients.

Spinal Cord Stimulation for Failed Back Surgery

Our talented and exceptional board-certified doctors here at BEST specialize in specific treatments and care that will help patients recover after failed back surgery. We understand that a failed back surgery can be extremely disappointing, especially after the time, money, and effort you placed in investing in your procedure. 

The team of highly skilled surgeons and specialists at the BEST Health System is dedicated to staying at the forefront of medical advancements and providing the best possible care for spinal cord stimulator treatment. 

Spinal cord stimulators can be broken down into different parts: the generator which produces electrical impulses, and the leads which are thin wires placed intentionally along the spine depending on the location of the patient’s chronic pain. The currents created through the leads modulate pain signals before they reach the brain. 

It is important to understand that spinal cord stimulators do not necessarily “fix” a damaged nerve. Instead, they block the pain signals before they can reach the brain which can provide patients with meaningful pain relief.
