In brief: Low, but occur

The risks should be discussed with your surgeon.
They include, but are not limited to, blood loss, infection, recurrent herniation, dural tear, nerve scarring, nerve injury, epidural hematoma, arachnoiditis, possible need for additional laminectomy or fusion, spinal instability, as well as medical and anesthetic risks.
