What Is Revision Spinal Surgery?
Revision spinal surgery is a procedure that takes place on a patient who has already undergone some form of spine surgery. Typically, by six months after a surgery has been completed, most outcome goals and parameters have been met. However, when a patient is still reporting chronic pain beyond this time frame, revision spinal surgery is sometimes considered.
With revision spine surgery, we correct symptoms that linger after a previous surgery. A second surgery is never ideal and no patient wants to hear they need a revision; however, in some cases a revision is necessary to correct issues not addressed by or even created by a previous surgery. Revision spine surgery can address symptoms and problems related to:
- The formation of scar tissue around an incision
- An unsuccessful surgery
- Surgery performed at the wrong site
- Surgery in a non-eligible candidate
- An improper diagnosis
- Post surgical complications
The goal of any revision surgery is to reduce pain so you can get back to normal activities. Revision spine surgery is only performed in certain circumstances, such as:
- The re-herniation of a disc
- An infection
- A hardware failure
- A non-surgery related spine degeneration
- Flat back syndrome
- Degeneration in an adjacent segment
