FAILED BACK SURGERY SYNDROME
Failed back surgery syndrome (FBSS), or failed back surgery, is a term used to describe the condition of patients who have not had a successful result with back or spine surgery and continue to experience pain and symptoms after undergoing the procedure.
WHAT IS FAILED BACK SURGERY SYNDROME?
Failed back surgery syndrome can be the result of a number of issues, such as inaccurate or ineffective treatment, misdiagnosis, or possibly working with an inexperienced surgeon. For patients suffering from FBSS, symptoms typically include ongoing or worsening pain following surgery and a change in range of motion or flexibility of the spine.
