    This helps the vertebrae fuse into a single bone, reducing or getting rid of pain. Spine surgery to remove instrumentation is not typically considered an emergency unless there is risk of injury to the spinal cord or nerves by not doing the surgery. Man-made hardware is often used in spine surgery as a way to assist in healing or add support to the spine. Start Survey. It loosens or breaks, for example, or a painful infection develops.

    While it may be clear that problematic spinal instrumentation is causing your pain after surgery, your surgeon may recommend not removing.Redness, swelling or tenderness around your incision are also key indicators, as are the chills.

    Your stitches or staples will be removed by your GP or practice nurse days after surgery. Most people make a good recovery from removal of spinal hardware.Also, the most vulnerable level of your spine to these types of complications is the lumbosacral junction L5-S1, where the lumbar spine and sacrum meetfollowed by the thoracolumbar junction TL1where the thoracic spine and lumbar spine meet.

    That being said, there are absolutely times when a secondary surgery to remove your spinal hardware will be performed. Sometimes these operations are planned.Patients who have osteoporosis and with weak bones, the immediate level above the surgery site are also vulnerable to instrumentation complications.
