Failed back surgery syndrome (FBSS) can occur for a number of reasons. It may be because of a trauma immediately after the initial surgery, not following the doctor’s orders, a poor healing process of the body, a surgical plan that does not take into account the longevity of the patient, or a subsequent disease process that causes the initial successful surgery to become weakened.
For example scar tissue can form around nerves or the patient years later can have an unrelated infection of the blood that destroys the fully functioning surgical construct. Failed back surgeries are rarely due to surgical errors. But when it occurs, CNSO surgeons are the chosen experts to resolve these complicated conditions in Union, NJ and the surrounding area.

Common symptoms associated with a failed back surgery may range from aching pain involving the back and/or legs to a sharp, pricking, burning or stabbing pain to weakness and the loss of the ability to function or even move.
