Spine Associates - Back to Normal

Revision and Reconstructive Spine Surgery

Spine surgery is a complex task that involves both benefits and risks. Revision and reconstructive spine surgery increases the complexity because of complications such as scar tissue and compromised bone and tissue quality. Healing is often not as effective with subsequent surgeries and the likelihood of infection is also increased. Dr. Francis

Indications for revision spine surgery

Revision spine surgery is surgery performed in certain patients to correct the problems of earlier spine surgery. Revision surgery is indicated in patients with chronic pain even after surgery, also known as failed spine surgery syndrome

Other factors indicated for revision spine surgery include:

  • Scar tissue formation around the incision
  • Unsuccessful surgery
  • Surgery at wrong site
  • Surgery in non-eligible candidates
  • Improper diagnosis
  • Post-surgical complications


The goal of revision spine surgery is to reduce pain and resume normal activities.
