Evaluate and Determine the Best Course of Care
Does a doctor, patient, or even sometimes an attorney needs to know if a patient needs a spine surgery or can conservative treatment be continued and spinal surgeon opinion is what you need
Many times it is difficult to see a neurosurgeon for a clinical appointment due to the fact that many are so busy with the clinic, the doctors “on call “schedule, scheduled surgeries, etc.
With an E neurosurgical consult the need to determine if a surgery is likely, or if conservative care should be used or continued, or a recommended course of treatment that if fails then surgery is most likely necessary, can be found out in less than a week without waiting to get in with a neurosurgeon, and a long wait in the surgeons office.
E neurosurgical consult is where a neurosurgeon reviews the images, doctors clinical notes, past history and sometimes qualified staff contacting the patient in the convenience of their home to ask an additional question if surgery or a conservative treatment plan is recommended. The neurosurgeon will work with a primary spine care physician, (qualified chiropractor, medical provider, physical therapist, or other healthcare providers) to quickly evaluate and determine the course of care.
