Does Lumbar Surgery (Discectomy) Has Any Long-Term Benefits Over Conservative Care?

NO!!! according to this research from "The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery": December 1, 2021.
Surgery might provide faster pain relief, with improved scores, at earlier time points. However, in almost all studies, those differences decrease with time and vanish after 1 or 2 years. The choice to undertake surgery should not be taken lightly, because surgery entails risks.
