Neurosurgery is essential for treating a range of conditions related to the nervous system. Like all medical doctors, neurosurgeons receive intensive training during their many years of study. However, unlike neurologists who focus on non-surgical forms of treatments, neurosurgeons are trained with a focus on surgical treatments.
