In brief: Yes
It is a very common performed procedure for lumbar disc herniation pathology.
Most patients with radiculopathic pain from disc herniation do very well in my experience.

Disc herniations are very common.
Most get better without surgery. About 10% go onto having surgery with a 90% successful outcome expected.
