Post-Surgery Pain

Following back surgery, patients may experience some degree of soreness. Intense pain or worsening pain, however, is not a normal part of the recovery process. That type of pain is usually due to post laminectomy syndrome, also called failed back surgery syndrome (FBSS).

When bony overgrowths of the spine exert pressure on the spinal nerves, some healthcare providers may recommend a laminectomy, in which a surgeon removes the part of the spinal bone. This surgery, unfortunately, often fails to relieve back pain or makes the pain worse. 

Center for Pain Management in Indianapolis specializes in alleviating post laminectomy pain. If you’ve had back surgery and are still in pain, our minimally invasive pain relief solutions may be able to help you. Contact us today to schedule a consultation: (317) 706-7246.

Causes of Post-Surgery Pain

Pain following back surgery may be due to: 

  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Arthritis 
  • A buildup of scar tissue near the nerve root
  • Inflammation near the spinal nerves
  • Health conditions that interfere with the healing process

A combination of treatments may be the best way to treat post laminectomy syndrome.

Treatment for Post-Surgery Pain

Depending on the intensity of pain, treatment may involve infusion therapy, physical therapy, nerve blocks, or more advanced procedures, such as a spinal cord stimulator implant, which generates electromagnetic pulses that replace pain signals with a tingling sensation.
