Expert Failed Spine Surgery Syndrome Treatment in Manhattan, Provided by Matthew Spiegel, MD


Failed Spine Surgery Syndrome (FSSS) is a term used to describe a patient’s persistent pain and/or neurological symptoms following spinal surgery. FSSS may be caused by a variety of factors, including adjacent level degeneration, surgical complications, hardware failure, incorrect diagnosis prior to surgery, improper patient selection, or patient factors such as obesity or poor physical condition. Symptoms of FSSS include persistent pain in the affected area, which may be localized or radiate. The pain may also be associated with persistent or worsened numbness, weakness and loss of function of the affected area.
