Re: Led

I had a discectomy in March 2004. Mine was successful, or would have been had I not reinjured it in a car accident 3 weeks post-op. I chose to have a regular discectomy as opposed to an LED because I believed (after much research) that it was a more proven method with a better success rate. This was just my opinion though, and I know it was the right decision for me. I also got a couple of other opinions, and the consensus was that the regular discectomy was my best option at the time. Do your research on both techniques, and get a second/third opinion from another surgeon. Good luck, and let me know if I can help!

Re: Led

I had a regular one as well and did great, until I too reherniated by returning to a lifting job.
