Broadcasting from Norway: AI Can Predict Prognosis After Lumbar Disc Herniation Surgery

Machine learning models can inform patients and clinicians about prognosis after lumbar disc herniation surgery, according to a study published online Feb. 7 in JAMA Network Open.

Bjørnar Berg, Ph.D., from Oslo Metropolitan University in Norway, and colleagues developed and validated prediction models for disability and pain 12 months after lumbar disc herniation surgery in a prospective registry-based prognostic study. The analysis included 22,707 surgical cases (21,161 patients) in the Norwegian Registry for Spine Surgery.
