A neurological surgeon provides the operative and non-operative management (i.e., prevention, diagnosis, evaluation, treatment, critical care, and rehabilitation) of disorders of the central, peripheral, and autonomic nervous systems, including their supporting structures and vascular supply; the evaluation and treatment of pathological processes which modify function or activity of the nervous system; and the operative and non-operative management of pain. Neurological surgery involves the surgical, non-surgical, and stereotactic radiosurgical treatment of adult and pediatric patients with disorders of the nervous system; disorders of the brain, meninges, skull, and skull base, and their blood supply, including the surgical and endovascular treatment of disorders of the intracranial and extracranial vasculature supplying the brain and spinal cord; disorders of the pituitary gland; disorders of the spinal cord, meninges and vertebral column, including those that may require treatment by fusion, instrumentation, or endovascular techniques; and disorders of the cranial, peripheral, and spinal nerves throughout their distribution.1

Neurological surgeons can receive training in the following subspecialty:

endovascular surgical neuroradiology, which involves utilizing catheter technology, radiologic imaging, and clinical expertise to diagnose and treat diseases of the central nervous system.

Residency
General Surgery; University of California at San Francisco, Pacific Presbyterian Medical Center, New York University School of Medicine
Has carried on a very extensive and diversified practice for almost forty years in almost every aspect of neurological surgery. This includes considerable diagnostic experience evaluating patients clinically as well as their imaging studies and following them either with or without operative intervention. Conditions have included tumors of the brain, spine, and peripheral nerves; vascular problems such as aneurysms, AVMs, TIAs, occlusions, abscesses, meningitis, degenerative diseases, herniated cervical, thoracic and lumbar discs; spondylosis; spondylolisthesis; spinal instability; limb, spinal, and cranial pain; trauma; congenital problems; normal pressure hydrocephalus; and many others. As a result of teaching and attending many conferences and courses in the United States and internationally, frequent consultations with colleagues, and constant reading, I have tried to remain on the forefront of neurosurgical thinking. In recent years I have focused primarily on spinal problems. I have performed many Independent Medical Examinations and peer reviews and have reviewed malpractice and other legal cases both for the plaintiff and the defense.
