While the spinal surgeon will explain the possible risks of your back or neck operation, general complications of spine surgery are: anesthesia, bleeding, blood clots, dural tear, infection, lung problems & persistent pain.
However, the biggest risk of back surgery is that it will not work. Failed back surgery should be a genuine concern for individuals considering back surgery. The most common cause of failed back surgery syndrome is that the doctor addressed an anatomical issue in the spine that was not actually the cause of the patient's pain symptoms. This results in continued or worsening pain, after the surgery.
