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 typically perform a wide range of surgeries from minimally invasive spinal procedures to more complex spinal and brain surgeries.  They are trained in the use of state-of-the-art diagnostic and surgical equipment to help ensure the best outcome and shortest recovery time.  Neurosurgeons have the tools, training, and skills to achieve the best results possible for their patients head, neck back and other injuries.
