Although the title neurosurgeon conjures up images of life-threatening injuries and complex brain operations, reality dictates that most neurosurgeons are also trained spinal surgeons and treat many patients with back pain and other common spinal problems. Back pain with or without sciatica is one of the commonest reasons patients seek help from a doctor, only a small proportion of patients will need to be referred to a neurosurgeon, and an even smaller number offered an operation.
