Failed Back Surgery Syndrome

Posted on behalf of Atlanta Orthopedic Surgeon

Orthopaedic Surgeons in Atlanta GAPeople who make the decision to undergo a surgical procedure do so with the expectation that the procedure will be worth it - that is, it will successfully correct the issues that made surgery an attractive alternative. However, there are some patients who do not have the outcomes they hoped for; in fact, they may develop new pain after surgery. Failed Back Surgery Syndrome (FBSS) is a condition in which patients have new or persistent pain after spinal surgery for back or leg pain. The term "Failed" Back Surgery Syndrome refers to the continuing pain and is not meant to imply that something went wrong during surgery. At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians we are a specialized team of experienced team of Interventional Spine physicians, Interventional Sport physicians, and Orthopedic Specialists that offer expert treatment for FBSS.

It may seem odd that a minimally invasive treatment could improve the pain associated with spine and neck conditions when back surgery was unsuccessful. However, according to the International Neuromodulation Society, large, carefully conducted clinical trials have shown that certain minimally invasive spinal techniques, such as spinal cord stimulation, are highly successful at eliminating pain. The doctors at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are dedicated to help patients find the relief that they need to thrive in life. While FBSS can be difficult to treat, Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are committed to using the most advanced and minimally invasive methods to help patients with FBSS find long-term relief.

Please do not let the fear of another failure keep you from contacting Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians. Our compassionate staff understands your frustrations and disappointments. Our low patient-to-provider ratio allows us to fully concentrate on your condition so that we are successful at treating your pain. The physicians at Ortho Sport & Spine look forward to helping you stay active and thrive.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.
