Every year, tens of thousands of people undergo hip replacement surgery. One of the major reasons is the wearing down of the hip joint. This is most often due to the effects of osteoarthritis; however, other health conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, bone tumors and avascular necrosis – a condition that causes loss of bone due to insufficient blood supply – can also lead to problems with the hip joint. Keeping your hips in healthy condition can help you avoid this surgery.
Failed back surgery syndrome is described as "patients who have new or persistent pain after spinal surgery for back or leg pain." People elect to have back surgery in hopes of relieving the pain and discomfort that they already have. But there are some who do not have successful results after back or spine surgery and experience continued, or worsened, pain after surgery. There are a variety of factors that can cause failed back surgery syndrome, and this complex condition can be difficult to treat. At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we specialize in providing effective solutions to complex back and spine problems, including failed back surgery syndrome.
Many times pain that reoccurs or that develops after back or spine surgery can be very disheartening to patients. Depression, feeling as though you will never be free from pain, and fear are all common emotions when failed back surgery syndrome happens.
