Failed back surgery syndrome and failed neck surgery syndrome is a condition in which a patient has had surgery for a specific problem, but they experience the same or even worse pain after surgery. Typically the anatomical problem was corrected by surgery but the pain persisted. This may be due to scar tissue, recurrent disc herniation or persistent nerve damage. OSC Pain Management physicians can work with you to address any pain that remains and help you to find ways of managing the pain to return to a more productive life.
