Hello, and thank you for your post! Spinal instrumentation failure is one of the risks of fusion surgery, and there's a lot that goes into the decision of whether to keep the instrumentation in or remove it with another surgery.

Your question made us think of this article: ( Spinal Fusion Instrumentation Removal: Pros and Cons ). We hope this information helps you.

We'd also like to share a link to our doctor finder tool: https://www.spineuniverse.com/locate/spe... . If you would like a second opinion on how to proceed with your screw failure, this link can connect you to reputable spine surgeons near you in Ohio.

We hope this helps and wish you the very best!
