"Surgery may be an option if your symptoms do not go away with other treatments and time.
Diskectomy is surgery to remove all or part of a disk.
Discuss with your doctor which treatment options are best for you."

Most herniated discs improve within a years time. Some tend to become chronic pain generators. You may consider surgery if more conservative measures are not working. Surgery may definitely be needed if there is progressive weakness in the legs or loss of bladder and/or bowel control-these can mean emergency surgery is necessary.
