“Failed Back Surgery,” “Failed Back Surgery Syndrome,” and simply “Failed Back” are umbrella terms used to describe chronic pain that starts or persists after spine surgery. To understand this cause of pain, it is important to remember that spine surgery serves a certain purpose. It solves a number of problems, but as any other tool, it has its limitations. The surgery itself can cause pain, and a surgical procedure may not be able to address all pain generators.
