REVISION SPINE SURGERY
Why Revision Spinal Surgery? Many patients suffer from chronic pain issues, before and after surgery. For these patient’s revision spinal surgery can become an imperative, life-altering procedure.
The main goal of Revision Spinal Surgery is the reduction of both acute and chronic pain, and to allow patients a better quality of life. In addition to chronic pain issues, other issues that may make revision spinal surgery necessary are:
- The formation of scar tissue around the point of prior incision.
- Surgery performed upon the incorrect area of the spine (ie. the incorrect spinal disc)
- Incorrect Diagnosis
- Pre/Post-surgical Complications
- Unsuccessful Spinal Correction
- Spinal instability
