The nervous system specialists
Why choose a neurosurgeon for your back and neck pain? Your spine is more than just bones. It contains your spinal cord, which attaches to your brain. All the nerves of your body start at the spinal cord. Your brain, spine and nerves make up your nervous system.
Only neurosurgeons have the advanced medical training to understand the nervous system and how the brain, spine and nerves work together. They spend a 7-year residency learning all about the brain, spine and nerves.
Ask your doctor if a neurosurgeon is the best choice for your back or neck pain.
