August 1-31: Neurosurgery Outreach Month

Posted on August 21st, 2013

August 1-31:  Neurosurgery Outreach Month:  Although most people think of them as brain surgeons, neurosurgeons are medical specialist who diagnose and treat disorders of the entire nervous system.  Of course, they operate on the brain, but they actually spend a large part of their time helping patients with back and neck problems, providing surgical and nonsurgical care.  They also are leaders in diagnosing and treating head and neck injuries, including traumatic brain injuries and concussions.  Every August, an interesting and unique subspecialty area of neurosurgery is highlighted through a public outreach campaign.  For more information, contact:  Member and Public Outreach Department: American Association of Neurological Surgeons.
