In brief: No
Diskectomy is a surgical procedure in which disk material is removed, usually to relieve spinal cord pressure (neck and mid back disks), arm pain (neck disks), or leg pain (mid and low back disks).
It cannot be put back in later. There are disk replacement (neck and low back), but at this time they are all made of artificial (human made) materials.
