Failed Neck Syndrome

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.
