In brief: Yes

Surgery can be very effective in treating symptoms arising from these issues.
However, in most cases extensive nonsurgical treatment must be ineffective prior to considering surgery.

In brief: Yes

Lumbar spinal stenosis is a common problem especially for those older than 50.
It can be managed conservatively in many patients for years. If surgery becomes necessary, it can be planned on an elective basis. Check out spine-health.Com.
