1. Who is a Neurologist Surgeon?
A physician who specializes in the diagnosis and surgical treatment of disorders of the central and peripheral nervous system is called Neurosurgeon. These specialists often work closely with other specialists, including neurologists, vascular surgeons, oncologists, endocrinologists, pediatricians, to name a few. Neurologists see patients sent by primary care physicians or other specialists through consultations and referrals.
The education to become a Neurologist Surgeon is extensive. After pursuing four years of pre-medical education at a university, s/he needs to further qualify four years of medical school for MD or DO degree, one year of internship, followed by five to seven years of specialty training in a residence program. In addition to the above training programs, many Neurologist Surgeons also get enrolled in a fellowship program in order to specialize in a specific area such as the spine, pediatric neurosurgery, or peripheral nerve surgery.
2. What does a Neurologist Surgeon do?
People often get confused between a Neurologist and a Neurologist Surgeon. A neurologist specializes in treating diseases and conditions of the brain and nervous system, but they do not perform surgery.
It is often believed that neurosurgeons are just brain surgeons. However, these specialists largely manage spine conditions and procedures than brain disorders.
Some of the common conditions that a Neurologist Surgeon examines and treat, include Congenital anomalies of the brain and spine, vascular disorders, infections of the brain or spine, degenerative diseases of the spine such as back pain, neck pain, sciatica, herniated disks. Besides these, one can also consult a Neurosurgeon for concerns realted to stroke, acoustic neuroma, astrocytoma, brain cyst, chordoma, brain tumors, nerve sheath tumors, neurilemmomas, neurofibroma, oligodendroglioma, pineal tumors, pituitary tumors, sports injuries, headaches as well as spine tumors and injuries
Since our nervous system is extended into the entire body through varied nerve branches, so a Neurologist Surgeon is also responsible to manage the problems in the central nervous system.
3. When Should I See a Neurologist Surgeon?
Your primary care provider will usually refer you to a Neurologist Surgeon if a neurological disorder is suspected. Ask an online neurologist if you experience symptoms that indicate a problem with your brain or nervous system, including muscle weakness or paralysis, movement problems, headache that doesn't go away, chronic pain, uncoordinated movements, dizziness, numbness or tingling, memory problems such as confusion, memory loss, sensory problems such as vision, hearing, taste, smell, etc., and tremors & seizures.
4. What Kinds of Tests Does a Neurologist Surgeon Perform or Recommend?

• Carotid duplex• Cerebral angiography• Computed tomography• Discography• Doppler ultrasound• Electroencephalogram• Electromyography• Intrathecal contrast-enhanced CAT scan• Lumbar puncture• Magnetic resonance imaging• Myelogram• Nerve conduction study• Oculoplethysmography• Positron emission tomography (PET) scan• Selective nerve root block• Somatosensory evoked response test
5. What Questions Should I Ask a Neurologist Surgeon?
You may want to ask these kinds of questions:
• How many surgeries have you performed on people with this tumor type and/or location?• How will you protect against damage to the brain?• Will I be awake during surgery?• How will tumor location affect my outcome and your strategy?• What are the risks and benefits of surgery for me?• Will I experience different symptoms or cognitive problems after surgery?• Where and how big will the incision be?
