Depends: Depends on the injury and the efficacy of the surgeon; there are good "minimally invasive" surgeries for backj pain that may not require a bunch of hardware; look for minimally invasive back surgery in your area but if you have a compressed nerve it may be the best solution. Get a couple of opinions, though.
