    Can minimally invasive surgery fix 14 years leg pain cause by disc herniation?

    I have been having right leg pain since 2008, I am just retired and looking for a minimally invasive surgery, my pain is not severe and I guess it is not worth to do an open surgery. I found a good neurosurgeon, it is said he does successful MISS surgery including for a patient who had back and leg pain for 30 years. I am not sure if I am a good candidate for this kind of surgery or it can't bring a good result to me if I decide to do so.

    I am looking for a similar succeed patient experiences.

    Thanks.

    It would all depend on what exactly the condition of your issue is. Best advice is to go see him, get an MRI and then you'll know if it's even possible. Have epidurals helped?

    I did the epidural several times on the lower back in 2008 and it was helpful , but not for the leg pain, Yes, I am going to see that doctor and do a MRI ,should I ask for an MRI with Contrast?

    Thanks,

    I would ask his opinion. My problem nerve was very visible on a regular MRI.
