Failed Spinal Fusion Surgery

Almost all open spine surgeries involve fusing vertebrae in some form. The success rate of spinal fusion surgery is relatively high (40 to 80 percent) when it comes to single level fusions, but is only about 15 percent for multi-level fusions. With a failed spinal fusion surgery, pain persists even after the bone graft has been placed between vertebrae.

In order to solve the problem, corrective surgery is often required. At the Bonati Institute for Advanced Arthroscopic Surgery, addressing complications caused by failed spinal fusion surgeries is an area of particular expertise. Founded in 1981 by Dr. Alfred Bonati, the Institute has been a leader in perfecting minimally invasive surgical techniques that reduce recovery time while greatly raising success rates.

Types of Treatment for Failed Spinal Fusion Surgery
The Bonati Arthroscopic Laser Discectomy is one option for correcting failed spinal fusion therapy. In this procedure, performed under local anesthesia, remaining nerve compression can be relieved using special surgical tools fed through a small incision. With the help of an endoscope, the surgeon removes any diseased material, using a laser to eliminate problem tissue and reshape the disc. This procedure typically brings immediate relief.

Another procedure used to correct failed spinal fusion surgery is The Bonati Arthroscopic Laser Foramenoplasty. In this operation, an endoscopic camera introduced through a tiny incision gives the surgeon a clear view of the narrowed foramen. Any scar tissue resulting from previous surgery, diseased disc material, or bone spurs are effectively vaporized with a precise laser.
