In brief: Varies

It depends completely on the nature of the surgery performed.
Some of the minimally invasive surgeries we perform have little or no down time. Other, much more extensive surgeries, may have recovery times that extend several months. Thank you for your question.

In brief: Depends on u & type

This depends on the type of surgery done and what condition you are in at the time of surgery and whether there were any complications with the surgery.
For an outpatient microdisectomy, it can range from activity restriction for several weeks and some home exercises to a full fledged physical therapy program of at least 6 weeks with a more involved surgery like a multilevel fusion.
