Referrals & Advice

Your neurosurgeon is committed to providing you with the best treatment for your condition. In the first instance, you may need to see your family doctor to be referred to a neurosurgeon.

Once you see your neurosurgeon, they will be able to provide you with further information about your diagnosis, treatment alternatives and the course of care, especially expectations for surgical outcomes. Ask questions, discuss the risks of the course of treatment including complications and seek further clarification when you are unsure. It is important that you share all relevant information with your neurosurgeon.
