Spinal Fusion For FBSS

Chronic pain is a constant struggle. But when you undergo back or neck surgery to correct the pain, only to find that the pain comes back, it’s not uncommon to feel hopeless.

Luckily, this issue, known as failed back surgery syndrome (FBSS), is solvable. But you have to find the right treatment. One of the treatments we may recommend is a very common spine surgery treatment, known as spinal fusion.

When To Consider Spinal Fusion For FBSS

The choice in surgical treatments for FBSS is directly related to the cause of the failed surgery, as well as what the surgeon assesses is the best treatment for your back, neck, or leg pain issues. There are many different surgical and non-surgical treatments available, and one your surgeon may consider is spinal fusion, both instrumental and non-instrumental.

The decision to use spinal fusion for FBSS has to be carefully considered. Fusion can be very effective, but only in select circumstances where all conditions are met:

  • When the failed spine surgery is not related to conditions that create failed fusion.
  • When the spine is insufficient health that adjacent segments will be less affected.
  • When other possible surgeries have been ruled out.

For patients that already had spinal fusion, repeat fusion or revision spinal fusion must only be used when the factors that caused the initially failed fusion are addressed. This requires considerable expertise in FBSS, which not all orthopedic surgeons have.

FBSS Conditions Treated By Spinal Fusion

Spinal fusion may be recommended as a treatment for a variety of different FBSS causes. For example, spinal fusion may be used to treat:

  • Failed Spinal Fusion
  • Adjacent Segment Disease
  • FBSS Due to Misdiagnosis
  • Spinal Instability Following Other Back Pain

Spinal fusion is often performed incorrectly or on the wrong patients as well, and so careful, detailed diagnoses becomes even more critical as a way to determine the best candidates for this type of failed back surgery procedure.
