Microdiscectomy surgery but questionable surgeon experience?

??? If you are questioning your surgeon ability to perform the recommended surgery, then i would suggest that you seek treatment elsewhere. Remember, if your spinal surgeon is fellowship trained, he has obtained a great deal of experience during that training. Experience is a double edge sword...A lot of experience with good results vs a lot of experience with poor results. Talk to prior surgical pati.
