What is revision spine surgery, and how is it performed?
Revision spine surgery is sometimes needed to correct issues that resulted from a previous spine surgery.
There can be a number of factors that can cause enduring or recurrent pain in someone who has already undergone spinal surgery.
Our Spine Surgeons have been trusted by countless patients to correct complications that arose from previous spine surgeries at other medical practices and hospitals.
The need for revision spinal surgery may be related to the re-herniation of a disc, development of a post-operative infection, hardware failure, non-surgery related spine degeneration, instability, adjacent segment degeneration, or pseudarthrosis (failure to achieve solid fusion).
Adjacent segment disease is the degeneration of the level above or below the original surgical area.
At OrthoNeuro, our Board Certified Spine Surgeons use the latest advancements in surgical techniques and technology to minimize the need for revision spine surgery.
How revision spine surgery is performed is based on what is causing pain and other symptoms.
If the implants from a previous surgery are pressing on a spinal nerve, these implants may be removed, repositioned, or reimplanted to alleviate the pressure on the spinal nerve.
In most cases, we begin with the most conservative treatment options and only recommend surgery if back pain does not respond to these conservative treatments.

“I recently had surgery on my lower back. I had heard that such surgery would result in pain and cause me difficulties in doing ordinary daily tasks but, I experienced no pain and was able to do normal activities at home and at church. Also, being a bee keeper, I was able to work the hives and extract the honey from most of the hives”
