Post Laminectomy Syndrome

Patients typically undergo spine surgery to correct abnormal anatomical problems that are causing neck/arm or back/leg symptoms, depending on the level of the spine that is suspected to be problematic. Many of these patients do well with these surgeries, but some continue to have persistent pain despite adequate healing of the surgical site. This condition is referred to as post-laminectomy syndrome or failed back surgery syndrome.
