    More About Neurosurgeons

    A neurologist is a doctor who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of brain and nervous system disorders. They also treat ailments like neurodevelopmental abnormalities, learning difficulties, and other conditions involving the central nervous system.

    A neurosurgeon, on the other hand, operates on the brain and spinal cord, whereas a neurologist usually cannot. Neurosurgeons are capable of guiding you through your diagnosis, treatment plan, surgery, and post-recovery alternatives in addition to performing surgical treatments.

    A neurosurgeon is a doctor who specializes in the diagnosis and surgical treatment of abnormalities of the central and peripheral nervous systems, such as congenital defects, trauma, tumors, vascular disorders, brain or spine infections, stroke, or degenerative spine diseases.

    Yes, neurosurgeons can operate on the spine as well.

    The surgery of the nerve system is known as neurosurgery. It is a medical speciality that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of patients who have injuries to, or diseases/disorders of, the brain, spinal cord, and spinal column, as well as peripheral nerves in all sections of the body.

    Many years ago, neurosurgeons were primarily responsible for spine surgery; however, in the last 20 to 25 years, spine surgery has evolved to the point where both neurosurgeons and orthopedic surgeons specialize in it, and both types of surgeons are equally qualified for most common spine operations.

    The most significant distinction between fellowship-trained and board-certified orthopedic spine surgeons and neurosurgeons is the training. A neurosurgeon is educated to treat brain and spine disorders, whereas an orthopedic spine surgeon focuses on the spine.

    Many countries like the US, UK, Germany have advanced infrastructure and trained doctors for neurosurgery. The drawback is the cost of neurosurgery in these countries is very high. India has emerged as one of the most favorite destinations for people looking for equally good neurosurgery treatment at affordable prices.

    Neurosurgery hospitals in India are as good as the hospitals in the Western countries with the latest technology and infrastructure available. The best neurosurgeons in India are trained at few of the best medical schools in India and the west; and they are adept in performing the most complex cases with great dexterity. The success stories of these surgeons say it all.

    Neurosurgery is both physically and emotionally demanding, say most of the neurosurgeons. Many neurosurgical treatments last only an hour or two, but more complicated procedures, such as removing aggressive brain tumors, can take up to 15 hours, which is a daunting task. It requires both physical and mental abilities.
