Neurosurgery has become increasingly specialised and it is usual to review cases as part of a multidisciplinary team before a complex intervention. Our neurovascular practice relies on close co-operation with neurointerventional radiological colleagues and it may be appropriate for patients to speak with both specialities in the course of deciding on treatment.
In other situations we draw on medical expertise from, for example neurologists, and neuro-oncologists. Sometimes it is optimal to carry out surgery alongside specialists in other disciplines e.g. ENT, oro-maxilla-facial or plastic surgery.
