Back pain is an extremely common phenomenon. It was estimated that almost 80 percent of individuals experience back pain at some in their lives. To evaluate clinical features of lumbar disc herniation and their relation with the outcome of the treatment, a prospective study conducted in the period from April 2005 to May 2008 included 40 Iraqi patients who met the inclusion criteria. MRI was the main diagnostic tool. The outcome of surgical treatment; was evaluated for 6 months postoperatively depending on kamofskys scale. The patients were 31 males and 9 females. With a mean age of 36.87 years.The range of the duration of the clinical features was between 3days to 18months. Laminectomy and discectomy was performed to all patients &the commonest operative finding was posterolateral disc herniation. Three types of complications were encountered which are surgical wound infection, cerebrospinal fluid leak and discitis. The outcome of disc surgery is affected by, technique and skills and other factors. Duration of backache and sciatica less than 6 months before operation, was good prognostic factor while Preoperative paresis of grades (2, 1, 0) and presence of comorbidities were poor prognostic factors.
