Lumbar disc herniation (LDH) is the commonest illness amongst working inhabitants requiring surgical intervention. This research goals to foretell the return to work after operative remedy of LDH primarily based on the observational research together with 153 sufferers. The classification drawback was approached utilizing choice bushes (DT), help vector machines (SVM) and multilayer notion (MLP) mixed with RELIEF algorithm for characteristic choice. MLP offered finest recall of zero.86 for the category of sufferers not returning to work, which mixed with the chosen options allows early identification and personalised focused interventions in direction of topics susceptible to extended incapacity. The predictive modeling indicated on the most decisive threat elements in prolongation of labor absence: psychosocial elements, mobility of the backbone and structural adjustments of aspect joints elements together with standing, sitting and microclimate.
