PAs in Neurosurgery play an integral role in the global management of neurosurgery patients, including all aspects of pre-, intra- and post-operative care. Neurosurgery PAs perform patient histories, help with treatment plans, serve as first assistant in surgery in which they assist with all neurosurgical procedures, manage post-operative care and handle a myriad of office-related duties.
Neurosurgery PAs work under the supervision of the Neurosurgeon. Their knowledge, education and skills benefit the Neurosurgeon and the Neurosurgical practice by reducing the amount time the Neurosurgeon spends with small issues allowing the surgeon to handle the more seriously ill patients.
It will take time to adjust to the operating room environment. If a Neurosurgical practice hires a new grad they must understand that the Neurosurgeons must instruct and demonstrate to that individual their method of dealing with Neurosurgical problems conditions surgical techniques.
