Pain Condition --- Post-Spinal Surgery Pain

Sometimes pain can persist or reappear after spinal surgery. Many times it is due to irritation of nerve roots by scar tissue that is a product of surgery. Irritation of nerve root by scar tissue can cause back pain or leg pain.

Interventional treatment options include Epidural Steroid Injection or Selective Nerve Root Block (Transforaminal Injection). If these injections fail then Spinal Cord Stimulator Trial can be considered.
