What Is Revision Spine Surgery?

Revision surgery is often necessary because of adjacent level pathology, hardware failure, new injury, infection, chronic pain, scar tissue formation or a previous unsuccessful surgery. Revision surgeries are technically challenging, and the difficulty of revision spine surgeries vary. The goal of revision spine surgery is to reduce pain and gradually resume activities.

What to Know Before Revision Spine Surgery

When preparing for revision spine surgery, it is important to refrain from smoking or using tobacco products for at least six weeks prior to the procedure. Doing this will help facilitate healing/fusion. Patients are also asked to refrain from alcohol use one week prior to surgery. Alcohol can inhibit clotting mechanisms which can lead to increased bleeding risks.
