    What causes sciatic nerve pain when diagnosed with herniated disc?

default
Posted on Fri, 11 Aug 2017 in Brain and Spine
Question: I have had sciatic nerve pain since October 2016. I have had an MRI and have herniated disc. I am wanting to have surgery to remove the herniated disc instead of doing thee injections. I have seen a neurologist and an orthopedic spine surgeon and they are both recommending spinal injections. I am looking for the most successful place to have the surgery.
