< Low Back & Leg Pain Conditions
Post Laminectomy Syndrome

Post laminectomy syndrome is a persistent pain that may affect patients following a lumbar laminectomy.

Also known as failed back surgery syndrome, the ongoing back and leg pain that some patients experience after spine surgery may emanate from scar tissue and fibrous adhesions that can bind with the lumbar nerve root. Although scar tissue is a normal part of the healing process, and surgical outcomes may be positive, the lingering pain can be debilitating for patients long after surgery. An experienced pain management specialist can diagnose the root of the pain and develop an effective strategy to reduce and control the pain.
