Abstract

Lumbar disk herniation is a commonly seen disorder that requires care by spinal surgeons and healthcare professionals. Although there has been substantial research on the diagnosis, treatment, complications, and outcomes of lumbar disk herniation, patient management varies. A review and evaluation of the literature (with special regard for high-quality randomized studies) and familiarity with best practices guidelines for the evaluation, management, and treatment of adult lumbar disk herniation will enhance the optimal delivery of health care to affected patients.
