A gynecologic oncologist is a specialized obstetrician or gynaecologist who deals with the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of different cancers of a woman’s reproductive system. They treat cancers of the uterus, ovaries, endometrium, cervix and vagina.
A neurosurgeon, who may also be referred to as a brain surgeon, is a specialist who has received extensive training in general surgery. The neurosurgeon typically trains as a general surgeon resident for five years, followed by many additional years receiving additional specialized training in neurosurgery for adults or children. These physicians are trained to diagnose, treat, rehabilitate and perform surgery to correct issues that may occur in the nervous system.
If you need to have surgery on your brain or spinal cord, It is important to select a neurosurgeon who is very experienced in type of surgery that you need. It is also important to remember that there is some overlap with other surgical specialties, particularly orthopedics, as both specialties perform back surgeries and spinal surgeries.
Some neurosurgeons specialize in a specific area of the nervous system while others practice on the brain, neck, and spine. At smaller facilities, they often perform many types of neurosurgery, very specialized surgeons are more typically found at very large facilities. These surgeons may specialize in brain surgery, or they may be "super" specialized, for example, only performing surgeries to remove cancerous tumors from the brain. Others may specialize in surgery on the lower back, neck, or other areas.
