Revision Surgery

Have you experienced an unsuccessful spine surgery? Have you been told you have to live with the pain and deformity?
Take heart.
While many centers are reluctant to try to correct a failed first procedure, Baylor Scoliosis Center specializes in complex or challenging deformities – particularly those resulting from unsuccessful surgeries.
The board-certified, fellowship-trained spine surgeons on our medical staff are nationally renowned leaders in their field and have developed a number of successful strategies to reverse the consequences of failed initial surgeries. At Baylor Scott & White Scoliosis Center, we help patients realize positive outcomes and long lasting pain-free results – even those who were told nothing could be done. 
Since 2012, our pre-eminent research team has published numerous manuscripts in peer-reviewed journals and has received prestigious national and international awards, all of which reflect the important advancements the BSW Center team has made in the treatment of scoliosis and adult spinal deformity. One of the busiest complex spinal deformity centers in Texas, the physicians on our medical staff perform 400 to 500 surgeries a year.
The most common reason for revision surgeries is pseudarthrosis, a condition in which the spine does not heal correctly. Surgical revision may also be needed for junctional scoliosis or kyphosis that occurs with the discs above or below the initial fused area of the spine become worn, shrink or lose their shape. In some cases individuals require revision surgery because they’ve developed a new deformity that is a secondary outcome of their primary surgery. 
Revision surgery is technically demanding, as such it is essential that the underlying problem first be identified. Every patient is different. That’s why patients at Baylor Spine Center go through a rigorous pre-operative regimen to pinpoint the underlying problem, determine the best course of action and identify potential complications.
As a patient of The Center, you’ll also take comfort in the fact that you will be cared for every step of the way by a team that consists of office and hospital personnel who will work closely with you from pre-surgery preparation through surgery and then throughout the initial phases of rehabilitation. What’s more, we’ll follow your progress for a number of years after surgery to support you as you heal, and help you move on with your life.
