Neurosurgery

Juris Medicus has board‑certified experts in the specialties of adult and pediatric neurosurgery.

A neurological surgeon also known as a neurosurgeon is a specialist who treats conditions involving the central nervous system (both the brain and spinal cord).

A neurosurgeon’s training is the longest training period of any medical specialty. In addition to four years of pre-medical education, four years of medical school, and a year of internship, their residency is 5 to 7 years.

After that, many pursue a fellowship to specialize in an area such as the spine, pediatric neurosurgery, peripheral nerve surgery, or neuro-endovascular surgery. Common conditions that would be best treated by a neurosurgeon involve trauma to the brain and spine, cranial aneurysms, cranial malformations, birth defects such as spina bifida, chronic low back pain, tumors, and intracranial atherosclerosis.
