Dr. McCance corrected two fusions that a different surgeon worked on——these previous fusions failed to fuse to the bone and were considered “loose”. In my search for help it led me to his office. I had surgeries in the first half of 2022 and I can now walk, sit, rollover in bed, cough, sneeze, stand from a seated position significantly better than I could before…when people see me they are amazed at the change in me. These improvements to my quality of life are due to the work of Dr. McCance and his dedicated team. I recommend that you meet with him and give him an opportunity to discuss your spine issues, pain, etc., because he provided an option to me that changed my life for the better. ~ Google

Surgery may sound daunting, especially when it is the second or third time for the same spine condition, but there is no reason to continue living in chronic pain. For many people, revision spine surgery for herniated discs represents a chance to return to the things they love the most.

Some of the indications for revision surgery include new disc herniation, worsening stenosis, instability, new onset pain, problems with a fusion (i.e. the bone did not heal properly); all of these are ‘structural’ problems that can usually be detected on scans such as X-rays, MRI or CAT Scan. The reasons for revision surgery might include severe or worsening leg or back pain despite physical therapy, medications and injections, and symptoms including weakness, numbness and tingling, or inability to stand up straight.

From the time I came out of anesthesia the pain was gone and never reappeared. I am now able to walk miles or stand still for a long time with no pain what so ever. Never even took anything for pain as I was pain free immediately after operation. My advise to you: go to the right spine surgeon from the very beginning – including diagnosis. Thank you, Dr, McCance for giving me my life back. ~ HealthGrades

One of the goals of revision spine surgery is to remove scar tissue that has formed at or near the surgical site. A build-up of scar tissue can cause spinal nerves to become impinged or pinched, resulting in sharp pain in the neck, back or down the leg. The type of revision surgery you need depends on your specific condition. For example, a reoccurring disc herniation may require that a portion of the disc be removed to relieve the pressure on your nerve root. Another common form of revision spine surgery our board certified orthopedic spine surgeons commonly perform includes removing and replacing hardware that has failed, and repairing fusions that have not healed.

Dr. McCance did a wonderful job on my spinal fusion recently. He is a miracle worker. I felt very comfortable and secure in his hands. After several months of treatment which accomplished nothing, Dr. McCance performed surgery to correct decompressed disc in my lower back, above a region previously fused ten years ago. The other facility I visited for treatments never even discussed how bad my MRI was. I was not a patient there- I was a customer. They would have rathered I continue to seek treatment which would NEVER correct my condition. Dr. McCance Explained in detail how he could correct my problem. Thanks Doctor! ~ HealthGrades

It is also possible for herniated discs that were once repaired to suffer another herniation, a condition that occurs when a disc material extrudes through the outer disc wall. Other issues that revision spine surgery may be able to address include surgical errors, hardware failure and infection.
