Spinal disc herniation
Hello Doctors, My father in law (age 63) is suffering from lower back pain from past 6mn, the pain starts from lower back and continue to haunt as severe numbness at right leg. Orthopedic & Neuro doctors suggested couple of NSAIDs tablets but to no luck. Now which specialist doctor to approach? Is surgery necessary? what surgery to undergo for 100% cure? Pls mention the time duration for recovery post surgery.
