Wouldn't hurt to see a PT, sometime muscle imbalances can add pain by twisting your normal spine curvature or hip alignment out of place adding to the pain you are already having. Worth a try before going under a knife I would say.

Edit: Also look up some stretches for your Psoas (hip flexor) muscles, you'd be surprised how much lower back pain can be caused by tight hip flexors.
