About Failed Back Surgery Syndrome:

Failed Back Surgery Syndrome (also referred to as FBSS, or failed back syndrome) is a misnomer, because it isn’t really a syndrome – it’s a very generalized term that’s typically used to describe the condition of patients who haven’t had a successful result with back surgery or spine surgery and have experienced continuing pain after surgery. There’s no equivalent term for failed back surgery syndrome in any other form of surgery (e.g. there’s no failed cardiac surgery syndrome, failed knee surgery syndrome, etc.).

There are several reasons that a back surgery might or might not work, and even with the best doctor and for the best indications, spine surgery is no more than 95th predictive of a successful result.

Reasons for Failed Back Surgery and Pain after Surgery

Spine surgery is basically able to accomplish only 2 things:

Decompress a nerve root that’s pinched, or
Stabilize a painful joint.

Unfortunately, back surgery or spine surgery cannot virtually cut out a patient’s pain. It’s only able to change anatomy, and an anatomical lesion (injury) that’s a probable cause of back pain and it should be identified before rather than after back surgery or spine surgery.

By far the number one reason back surgeries don’t seem to be effective and a few patients experience continued pain after surgery is as a result of the lesion that was operated on isn’t, in fact, the reason for the patient’s pain.
