What is Post-laminectomy syndrome?

Post-laminectomy syndrome is a condition that occurs in some individuals who have undergone spinal surgery called a laminectomy.

Post-laminectomy syndrome is characterized by persistent pain in the back, legs, or arms, even after surgery. The pain can be severe and can limit a person's ability to perform daily activities.

If you are experiencing persistent pain after spinal surgery, it is important to speak specialist to determine the underlying cause and develop a treatment plan to manage your symptoms.
