Revision Spine Surgery


Revision Spine Surgery EdinaMany patients who have undergone previous spinal surgery may develop recurrent symptoms or never have significant relief from surgical intervention. When this is the case, revision surgery may be the best option to correct the underlying issue.

Revision Spine Surgery

Any patient with a history of previous surgery with new or unchanged symptoms requires an accurate diagnosis in order to effectively treat the pain generator.  Answers to the patient’s continued pain can be found by utilizing a methodical approach of:

  • Physical exam
  • Patient history
  • Imaging
  • Diagnostic injections

In many cases, pain symptoms can be improved with non-surgical methods.  In other cases surgical intervention will be required to correct the problem to improve symptoms and function.  In some cases it may be as simple as revision minimally invasive outpatient decompression.  In other cases complex multi-level spinal fusion will be required to correct the condition.
