Re: Orthopedic vs Neuro

No, there isn't a board specialty for Spine Specialists. However my guess is that will change in the near future. The line between both fields is blurring in regards to spine surgery.

And yes, it can be a personal choice. We all want the best care we can get. And with some, that may be a neurosurgeon and for others that may be a orthopedic surgeon. One just isn't better than the other.
