By design, spine surgery is a complex undertaking that involves both risks and benefits. Revision spine surgery is often more complex than the original procedure because of conditions such as scar tissue and compromised bone and tissue quality. Healing is often not as effective with subsequent surgeries and the likelihood of infection is increased. Our board-certified, fellowship-trained surgeons at Atlantic Spine Specialists, Dr. Carl P. Giordano, and Dr. Richard S. Nachwalter, specialize in this surgery as well as many others. Very often they are called upon by other surgeons to assist with complex spinal surgery cases.
