Our pain management physicians, clinical pain specialists and medical staff have extensive experience treating this serious pain disorder.

Learn About Post Laminectomy Syndrome (also known as Failed Back Surgery Syndrome)

Post laminectomy syndrome is diagnosed when there is persistent or recurrent neck pain or neck and arm pain following neck surgery, or back pain or back and leg pain following low back surgery. Post laminectomy syndrome is most common after fusion or laminectomy but can occur following discectomy as well. There are many possible caused for the condition including recurrent disc herniation, epidural fibrosis (scarring), arachnoiditis, persistent pathological changes in nerve tissue resulting in chronic neuropathic pain, structural changes in the spinal column, and progression of  degenerative processes. Spinal cord stimulation has been proven to be a successful option for patients diagnosed with post laminectomy syndrome (or failed back surgery syndrome).
