I am often asked, what exactly is a neurosurgeon?
According to the dictionary - 'A neurosurgeon is a type of surgeon who specializes in researching, diagnosing, preventing, rehabilitating and treating conditions affecting the central nervous system, which includes the brain and spine'. But in my humble opinion, it is what one does outside of the above statement that truly defines what a neurosurgeon is.
A neurosurgeon is someone who gives patients who suffer traumatic head injuries a second chance. Who corrects a nagging back pain that has hindered a patients mobility and way of life for as long as they can remember. Who explains complex ideas and diagnosis in a way that can easily be understood. Someone who provides comfort and clarity when you need it most. But most importantly, a neurosurgeon is someone who is willing to suffer with you, and be there from diagnosis to recovery and beyond.
That is a neurosurgeon. . . .
