Neurosurgeons have advanced specialized training in brain and spine surgery and have expertise in areas from trauma and spinal disorders to epilepsy and brain tumors. For patients suffering post-concussion syndrome or the effects of a more serious TBI, a neurosurgeon may be called upon for advanced imaging studies. Since neurosurgeons also have expertise in more serious brain injuries, they are often called in to consult with a multidisciplinary concussion team in assessing and treating patients with mTBIs.
Concussions rarely if ever require the surgical skills of a neurosurgeon, but as experts in the effects of trauma on the brain they can provide valuable input to a treatment plan.
