Failed Back Syndrome Treatment in Dallas-Fort Worth

Failed Back Syndrome refers to chronic back and/or leg pain that occurs after back surgery, typically post-laminectomy.

The most common symptom of failed back surgery syndrome is persistent chronic pain that is not related to normal healing. Other symptoms of FBSS include:

  • Pain experienced at new location on the spine above or below initial surgery area
  • Inability to fully heal and recuperate post-surgery
  • Limited spinal mobility post-surgery
  • Sharp or stabbing back pain in the spine
  • Diffuse, radiating and/or aching pain in the back and/or legs
  • Sharp, pricking, and stabbing pain in the extremities
  • Back spasms

Treatment Options for Failed Back Syndrome

  • Lumbar Epidural Steroid InjectionsEpidural steroid injections deliver medication directly (or as close as possible to) the source of pain generation.
  • Nerve blocks. Injecting an anesthetic close to the nerves sending pain signals.
  • Radiofrequency neurotomy. Radiofrequency ablation is a minimally invasive procedure typically performed using local anesthetic and mild sedation to relieve pain.
  • Electrical neurostimulation. Electrical stimulation to targeted sites of the body to alter nerve activity.
  • Intrathecal drug delivery. Intrathecal drug delivery, or “pain pump,” is a method of giving medication directly to your spinal cord.
