Revision spine surgery is a surgical procedure that addresses the complications and problems arising from primary spine surgery. Generally speaking, your spine surgery should address the root cause of your chronic neck or back pain, thus offering lifelong relief from pain. But a revision spine surgery might be necessary if you experience complications arising from the primary surgery, if the primary surgery fails to address your concerns, or if you develop new problems.
Dr. George Kakoulides is the leading board-certified neurosurgeon and spine surgeon in Long Island, New York. He only provides minimally invasive spine surgeries, and he performs a high number of revision spine surgeries for patients experiencing complications from their primary procedures (those handled by other surgeons). He investigates the root cause of your concerns, determines why your primary surgery failed, and curates the appropriate plan for your revision spine surgery.
