About Revision Spine Surgery

What is it and how is it performed?

Revision Spine Surgery Overview

Revision spine surgery is a rarely performed procedure that treats an unsuccessful spine surgery. Most revision spine surgeries are now performed minimally invasively so there is little to no post-procedure pain, recovery or downtime.

How is revision spine surgery performed?

Revision spine surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure under IV or oral sedation. Commonly performed minimally invasive procedures include:

  • Nerve block
  • Spinal cord stimulation
  • Pain pump implant

Medications and physical therapy are also commonly prescribed.

What conditions does revision spine surgery treat?

Reasons, why spine surgery may not be successful, are:

  • Bone does not fuse properly
  • Disc herniation
  • Hardware and implant failures
  • Medical conditions (diabetes, autoimmune disorders, peripheral artery disease)
  • Scar tissue formation

Symptoms that improve after revision spine surgery include:

  • Spine pain
  • Nerve pain

These are the best group of doctors that myself & my family have ever been treated by in this field of medicine. They listen to how you feel instead of telling you how you feel. Thank you all for your caring & kindness.
