Confused

Hello , my wife was just diagnosed with this problem, i'm confused because her doctor says that it won't need surgery however sending her to a neurosurgen but everything that I have read leads to surgery, my question is, how is the prognosis? is there any dangers into the surgery? will there be an immediate relieve of the severe headaches?
