Should I see an Orthopedic Spine surgeon or a Neurosurgeon?

Orthopedic Surgeon vs. Neurosurgeon

A frequent question we hear is “do I need to see and orthopedic surgeon or a neurosurgeon to treat my back or neck pain?” The reality is both sets of doctors have similar skill sets and training, so in most cases you would be fine with either. Orthopedic surgeons, however, work from day one of residency, with bones muscles nerves and joints throughout the body, including the spine. The spine is not just nerves, but a unit system of all these components working together. Additionally most Orthopedic Surgeons complete a special year or more long fellowship isolated to just dealing with surgical and nonsurgical treatment of spinal pain. Because of their musculoskeletal exposure, orthopedists are well-trained in recognizing pain from hip, knee and shoulder problems, which are frequently confused with neck and back pathologies.
