More than 1.2 million people undergo spinal operations every year... nearly 50 percent of spine operations are unsuccessful and result in continued or increased pain.

The Dr-Pain.com Network includes eight physicians specializing in the treatment of Failed Back Surgery syndrome, a condition affecting patients subject to post-operative spinal surgery complications. Dr. John Sazy, Dr. Venkat Sethuraman, Dr. Steven Cyr, Dr. Stephen Timon, Dr. Henrik Mike-Mayer, Dr. Rajesh Arakal and Dr. Kenneth Lee are most noted for their dedicated and proficient revision surgeries intended to correct Failed Back Surgery syndrome.
Failed back surgery syndrome isn't as simple as the word implies. Whether it be blamed on the complexity of the spinal anatomy or on what is implied in statistical evidence, back surgeries indefinitely fail. The spine is comprised of a plethora of bony vertebrae and joints including shock-absorbing discs and nerve bundles. Because the spine pilots body movement, it is infinitely essential for comprehensive body functioning.
The United States is currently leading in the amount of spine surgery cases performed around the globe. With the execution of approximately twice as many back surgeries compared to other developed nations, more than 1.2 million people undergo spinal operations every year. Additionally, US annual spending for spinal care has nearly doubled in the last decade. Despite it’s evident popularity, traditional open spine surgery is notoriously unreliable. According to statistics, nearly 50 percent of spine operations are unsuccessful and result in continued or increased pain - otherwise referred to as a “syndrome” of Failed Back Surgery, or FBSS.
“Many cases of FBSS are the result of misdiagnosis,” stated Dr. Mark Laning, neuromusculoskeletal expert. “Spine surgery is indicated in the treatment and restoration of spinal function and is often performed to relieve the pain resulting from a number of different associated conditions. An accurate presurgical diagnosis is key in determining successful surgical outcomes. When a condition is misdiagnosed, pain will inevitably persist because the surgical outcome does not treat the original problem. As a result, success rates for subsequent surgeries inevitably decrease and could very well lead to further complications.”
Due to the overwhelming prevalence of failed back surgery cases, medical advancements have initiated new revision surgery techniques as a means to correct the problem and prevent it from recurring.
