This case is about 43 year old male with 7 months history of back pain and sciatica. He had unsatisfactory relief with nonsurgical modalities. The MRI demonstrates paracentral herniated disc (HNP) at L5-S1. The patient experienced 100% relief of pre-op leg pain in the recovery room. This is a good basic surgical case for a novice with good training, even at L5-S1.
