Failed Neck Syndrome
Although most people experience satisfactory results after back or neck
surgery there are those patients that continue to have pain and/or symptoms
following despite the indicated surgery.
Patients experience failed neck syndrome when:
- The surgery does not fix the original problem
- Scarring or other complications exacerbate existing conditions
- Implanted surgical device failure
- Bone and tissue do not heal properly
Many patients with failed neck syndrome may experience sharp or dull pain
in the neck region or the area of the previous surgery. They may also
experience sharp or stabbing pains in the extremities.
Proper diagnosis is essential in the successful recovery and treatment
of the patient. Our experts at SCCNS have corrected numerous conditions
of failed neck syndrome that have been referred to us for evaluation.
Our team goes through a series of diagnostic measures including review
of all previous medical records dealing with your original surgery, rehabilitation
and recovery as well as any other history that may help in identifying
the cause of your failed neck syndrome.
It may also be necessary to do have new Xrays, MRI's or CT scan done
if there are not any for comparison.
