Brain and Spinal Cord
Brain and spinal cord injuries are devastating and any physician who undertakes to perform surgery on the nervous system without the proper qualifications is putting his patient in unnecessary risk. The opportunity for massive permanent injury is tremendous and the only excuse which has any chance to stand up as a defense is the demands of a dire emergency. Such surgery should not be undertaken except in a major medical center which has the proper special equipment. The potential for error is great even among those properly trained.
Almost as complicated as brain surgery and more common, is surgery involving the spinal column, commonly known as "disc surgery," usually involving the relief of pressure on a nerve due to the displacement of a portion of the spinal column. Because it is fairly commonplace, many surgeons undertake this type of surgery without having the skill or training of a qualified neuro-surgeon. Although most of the procedures so undertaken are routine and successful, there are a number which are not neurologically routine. The doctor who has undertaken such surgery and is not prepared to deal with the special cases is placing his patient at risk.
