Very good: I t depends on the pathology , the severity of it , and if there any complicating factors, the timing of the surgery, the age of the patient, wither he is healthy or not and timing of the surgery?

Since 90% of disc : Herniations get better over time without surgery, anyone can claim a 90% success rate including this spinal decompression therapy so don't spend any money on it!
