Kaleb,

Great question.

Most neurosurgeons work in a hospital facility and usually is one with a trauma center. Head injury is trauma level 1 or 2 and those would be the hospital levels that would require neuro. A lot of the time, neuros do not have their own practice as they are predominately emergency services considered emergency trauma such as car wrecks, work accidents, and the like where there may be a brain bleed or something emergent in nature.


Good luck on your journey.

A neurologist works in and out of the hospital. Becoming a surgeon is a added specialty and is much needed. Yes surgeons work in the hospital but some places are opening up Neuro clinics. Who knows maybe you might be the one to create an outpatient Neurosurgeon clinics.
