The job of a neurosurgeon is divided into various work activities. The neurosurgeons mainly treat the neurological problems with the help of surgeries and medications. Removal of brain tumors, diagnosing brain cancer, and back surgeries, besides other neurological procedures are some of the activities that the neurosurgeon performs. While some neurosurgeons work in the general aspects of the neurosurgery, various others opt for various specializations and sub-specializations. Pediatric neurosurgery, peripheral nerve neurosurgery, spine neurosurgery etc. are some of the specializations of the neurosurgeon. While many surgeons work for hospitals and health care units, many prefer solo or group practices. Many neurosurgeons also help psychiatrists, therapists and counselors in complications related to the nervous system. It is to be remembered that psychiatric problems can often be due to some physical damage or problem to the brain, so, they assist psychiatrists in tracing the problems of patients with such complications.
