When seeking treatment for a spinal condition, it helps to understand the differences between an orthopedic spine surgeon and a neurosurgeon. Many people think that there is a significant difference between orthopedic spine surgery and neurosurgery with a focus on the spine. This is not the case. In both specialties, doctors are trained with a specific focus on the spinal cord, and many doctors complete additional training after their residency.

Just like neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons are qualified to treat many spinal conditions involving nerve damage. Depending on your condition, you could be properly treated by either a neurosurgeon or an orthopedic surgeon.

In many cases, an orthopedic surgeon may be the right medical professional to perform your surgery. Orthopedic surgeons are often more qualified to treat a spinal deformity such as scoliosis, as this medical specialty focuses on musculoskeletal problems.

If you suffer from a spinal condition and think that a neurosurgeon is the best option for your treatment, you can schedule a consultation with Dr. Gabriel Hunt. There is no better neurosurgeon to treat your spinal problems.

If you are living with a spinal condition and are seeking treatment, see Dr. Leonel Hunt as soon as possible. Schedule a consultation with one of our spine surgeons today.
