Neurosurgeon Summary:
A Neurosurgeon is a surgeon that specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of disorders which affect any portion of the nervous system including the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves, and extra-cranial cerebrovascular system. Neurosurgeons most commonly operate on patients who are victims of trauma to the head, in addition to treating patients with cancerous or benign brain tumors that need to be surgically removed.

Education and Training: To become a Neurosurgeon one must generally complete four years of college, four years of medical school, a year-long internship that is usually affiliated with their residency program, and five to six years of neurosurgery residency. A Neurosurgeon may also decide to pursue a more specific specialty and receive additional certification in pediatric neurosurgery, trauma/neurocritical care, functional and stereotactic surgery, surgical neuro-oncology, radiosurgery, neurovascular surgery, Interventional neuroradiology, peripheral nerve, or spine surgery and skull base surgery.
