Post spinal surgery syndrome(PSSS) has always been considered only for the pain it causes. However, many other neurological deficits do happen after lower back surgery. The aim of this review is to look into the various other neurological deficits that could happen after a spinal surgery. Using the keywords, foot drop, cauda equina syndrome, epidural hematoma, nerve and dural injury in spine surgery, the literature was searched. Out of the 189 articles obtained, the most important were analyzed. The problems associated with spine surgery have been published in the literature but are much more than the failed back surgery syndrome and cause more discomfort to the patients. To bring about a more sustained and collective awareness and understanding of these complications following spinal surgery, we encompassed all these complications under the heading of PSSS.
