Failed Back Surgery

Failed Back Surgery – Treatment for Chronic Pain

Failed back syndrome or post-laminectomy syndrome is a condition characterized by persistent pain following back surgeries. Failed back syndrome, also called “failed back surgery syndrome”, refers to chronic back and/or leg pain that occurs after back surgery, usually after laminectomy., though this is a misnomer and such name is a generalized term to describe patients who experience pain after a back or spine surgery.

Contributing factors include but are not limited to residual or recurrent spinal disc herniation, persistent post-operative pressure on a spinal nerve. Despite receiving surgery from a doctor, there are many reasons a back surgery may or may not work.

The Need for Pain Treament from a Failed Back Surgery

The surgery has two goals: to stabilize a painful joint and to decompress a pinched nerve.  However, spine or back surgery cannot just cut out the pain from a patient. It can only change its anatomy, though ana anatomical injury must be identified first. This is why despite the countless surgeries, such procedures are not effective due to the fact that lesion that was operated on is not the cause of the pain that patient is feeling.

What Our Patients are Saying

  • Julie Bailey

    Had a ruptured disc from a car accident this summer that I have been having issues with pain wise. Dr. Dar’s quick service for cortisone shots to help manage the pain has been a lifesaver! Highly recommend.

  • Cliff Fisher

    I am so appreciative of Dr. Dar and his staff. I can see how busy he is, but even so he still takes his time during my appointment to explain what he can do to help me with my lower back pain. Thank you Dr. Dar!

  • Trish Marcos

    Dr. Dar and his staff were very professional and genuinely cared about my comfort and pain management when I was suffering from awful back pain. I really appreciate what they did for me. I finally have my life back and am able to function because of them. Thank you so much Dr. Dar!

  • Art Cruz

    I was referred by Dr. Homero Rodriguez to come and see Dr. Urfan Dar. I used to be a U.S. paratrooper, and after I hurt myself my lower back pain was so terrible that I couldn’t sleep at night. Dr. Dar is so good that I’ve been coming to him since 2002 . Dr. Dar pays attention to me when I tell him where I am hurting, and then takes care of the pain. He’s the best.

  • Misty Wilson

    I struggled for years to find someone who could help me with my Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome pain. P.A. Watson actually listened to me and has been working diligently to ease my pain ever since. I would highly recommend you go see him!!!

  • Lisa Ortiz

    Dr Bengali is wonderful! I had my first C-sp epidural injection, he said it could take up to five days to feel relief. I was having a pain of 7 walking and after I woke up my pain went dramatically down to a 2. I had instant relief. I couldn’t believe it. I was so happy with his team and the results. Thanks Dr. Bengali!

  • Michael Philby

    I have always had a good experience with the doctors, PA’s, and staff in the office. Their caring attitude towards their patients stands out. Another doctor I go to recommended them to me, and I’m glad she did. I’ve had issues with previous pain management offices: lack of caring, feeling like just another patient, rude behavior, extremely long waiting periods to see the doctor, and issues getting prescriptions. I highly recommend Tri-City pain management for issues you may have with chronic pain.

  • Rudy Moncivaiz

    The whole staff is very nice & very friendly! They treat you really well and with respect, the atmosphere is great. Dr. Dar is great, thank you very much!

  • Jennifer Plotts

    I was initially referred to Dr.Tong and I have to say, I was nervous. Well Dr. Tong surprised me, he is the best! He his honest and caring. The girls in the front are friendly also. I will be telling everyone about him, and thank you for helping me.
