What does a private neurosurgeon do?
A private neurosurgeon is a doctor who specializes in surgery of the nervous system. This may include the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves, and spine. Neurosurgeons are trained to diagnose and treat a variety of neurological conditions such as brain tumors, cerebrovascular diseases, degenerative spine diseases, spinal cord diseases, etc.
Why consult a private neurosurgeon?
It may be necessary to consult a private neurosurgeon if you have symptoms such as head or spinal pain, numbness or muscle weakness, visual disturbances, seizures, memory loss, recurrent vomiting, etc. If your family doctor or specialist suspects a neurological condition that may require surgical intervention, he may refer you to a neurosurgeon. It may be helpful to consult a private neurosurgeon if you are seeking a faster appointment than in the public healthcare system, seeking a second opinion, or seeking higher quality care.
How to prepare for a private neurosurgery consultation?
To prepare for a private neurosurgery consultation, it is recommended to take notes on your medical history, medications you are taking, and symptoms you are experiencing.
