New Jersey Devils winger Patrick Maroon has undergone surgery to repair a herniated disc in his back. He had a microdiscectomy. Typically we rest players for about 6 weeks after the procedure, then start a gradual return to activity. The main risk of returning too soon is a re-herniation, where more disc material extrudes out of the same area in the outer portion of the disc. Recurrence rates are typically quoted around 5%.
