Neurologist vs. neurosurgeon

There’s a nicely informative conversation on ABTA’s Inspire website about this: http://www.inspire.com/groups/american-brain-tumor-association/discussion/neurologist-vs-neurosurgeon/?ref=as&asat=144117822
 
I have a (great!) neurosurgeon, but don’t have a neurologist and didn’t really understand what a neurologist does. The discussion thread reveals how some brain tumor victims have been helped by a neurologist.

And here is a more definitive explanation of the differences and descriptions of a neurologist and neurosurgeon: http://www.lifenph.com/article-neuros.asp

Hi John, this issue has recently come to the national forefront since Ben Carson announced his candidacy for President. I explore it further in a recent blog post: http://beardedneurologist.blogspot.com/2015/11/ben-carson-is-not-neurologist.html
