I would never be a surgeon of any kind, 1 small mistake in the surgery, then the person’s dead.

Both of my parents are neurosurgeons. They said it is an amazing job to do.

To become a neurosurgeon you must first go through 4 years of pre med as an undergraduate. To get into medical school, you must survive until the end of premed; about two-thirds of all college freshman who start on the premed track usually quit. Around 40% of these survivors (the best of the best) actually make it into medical school. Then you must go through 4 years as a medical school student. To get into a neurosurgery residency, your USMLE Step 1 score (the most important test score in medical school) has to be above the 80th percentile, if not above the 90th percentile. Then you have to go through 7-8 years of neurosurgery residency. Past years, neurosurgery residents had to work 100-140 hours per week but the ACGME has set the max to 80 hours. Many neurosurgeons further their education by becoming a fellow. Fellowships typically last 2-3 years and fellows typically work similar hours as their resident peers. This adds up to 15-19 years in total of education. Relative to normal people, Neurosurgeons are borderline insane in regards to their passion for their craft and the same could be said about their intelligence. If you're in middle school, high school, undergraduate school, and your dream is to become a neurosurgeon, then you better have a damn good reason to do it (not just for the money). While you do make a shitload of money after residency/fellowship, 500-900k a year ain't gonna make you sit your ass down and study/go to class 120+ hours a week in medschool and convince you to do your rounds as a resident 80+ hours a week while studying on the side for tests. You're wasting away your 20s and early to late 30s to pursue this path; no amount of greed is going to make you do that. You should also prepare yourself for a life time of learning because your education won't end even after you complete your residency or fellowship.

I’m searching for a good neurosurgeon in Cleveland. I am living in constant severe pain. I have nf so that’s what I have involved in my spine. If I don’t get help soon I’m afraid I will have permanent damage. I have a appointment tomorrow out side from the Cleveland Clinic I hope this dr I will be seeing can help me.

There should be a class on giving bad news. It's a gigantic part of the job and helps keep the surgeon well rounded.

what is he talking about, i know a couple of people who had brain tumors that got operated and are alive and well without further issues, coming 20 years now. i guess he refers to purely malignant and difficult to operate cases and the editors just cut it out for time reasons or drama? there is a whole palette of benign, "easy" (well always a relative term lol) to operate tumors that most likely wont cause any troubles further down the line, once the operation was a success…

Couldn’t imagine the stress and burden this guy has to deal with. He deserves to be a multi millionaire (which he probably is). When socialists complain about inequality I use neurosurgeons as an example of who deserves to be wealthy.

I must take a lot of cognitive demand to separate you problems from your job.

the musculature in his face is developed as if he's expressed mostly worry for a long time. even when he's just looking at the camera, the inside of his eyebrows are raised as if those muscles are stronger than others

he's cute
but also looks tired :/ sucks that such a low percentage survive after 10 years
As an aspiring surgeon i feel that, they get too much workload and too many shifts
