Failed Back Surgery Syndrome

Failed Back Surgery Syndrome

Failed back surgery syndrome or Post-laminectomy syndrome is a term used to describe a situation where patients experience continued pain after primary back surgery, even though the normal healing process has finished.

With access to the most advanced diagnostic tools offered today, Dr. Christiano reevaluates your medical history, current symptoms and test results to determine your specific source of pain and treat it effectively. 

End your pain for good with state-of-the-art spinal cord stimulation

If you continue to suffer from back or neck pain, even after surgery, there’s still hope. Dr. Christiano’s background in spinal cord stimulation can help you. In fact, he was one of the first neurosurgeons to surgically install an MRI-compatible spinal cord stimulator.

With the use of spinal cord stimulation, Dr. Christiano can help you end chronic pain with a simple implant. A device is surgically placed to send a mild electric current to your spinal cord. Without the use of medication, these electrical pulses are directed to nerves along the spinal column to interfere with pain messages reaching the brain. Some common conditions a spinal cord stimulator can treat include:

  • Failed back surgery syndrome/ Post laminectomy syndrome
  • Chronic cervical and lumbar radiculopathy
  • Neuropathy
  • Complex regional pain syndrome

Western Neuro can help you end the battle of recurring pain with spinal cord stimulation to get you back to the life you love.
