What is a Neurosurgeon?

A neurosurgeon is a highly specialized doctor who has received years of advanced education and training in surgery of the brain and spine. Neurosurgeons are trained in the use of state-of-the-art diagnostic and surgical equipment to help identify brain and spine disorders and prescribe treatments that ensure the best outcomes and shortest recovery time. They perform a wide range of surgeries from minimally invasive spinal procedures to more complex spinal and brain surgeries. Neurosurgeons have the tools, training, and skills to achieve the best results possible for their patients.
