Dear Suzanne,
Ihad a disectomy on my L5 S1 disc.From what I've heard the procedure you mentioned is basically the same.My surgery was Dec 14th,99 and so far so good.It went really well and I have recovered quickly.A fusion is when they fuse your disc together so they are more stable.What they want to do to your Dad sounds like what I had done.I guess it's up to your Dad.It also depends on the pain he is in.Thats why I opted for surgery because I had back pain and a pinched nerve in my leg.I hope I've helped in some way.Good luck,Mary
