I believe they can replace L2-3. PRP around the disk would help stabilize the segment and help overall, if the disk damage is still minor but you've weakened the soft tissue around it.

There are a very few people doing stem cell injections into the disk itself, which can help for some people but only if the disk is intact enough to retain the injected cells. If it's torn and leaking, you'll have a hard time getting a lot of benefit from an injection.
