Neurosurgical Focus Volume 49: Issue 5 (November 2020)
Topic: Medicolegal Issues in Neurosurgery
Topic Editors: Bharat Guthikonda, Catherine A. Mazzola, Michael P. Steinmetz,
Joseph S. Cheng, Jason D. Stacy, Asdrubal Falavigna, and
Richard N. W. Wohns
According to this month’s topic editors, “nearly all neurosurgeons will be affected by the medicolegal process at some point in their career.” However, many neurosurgeons are not well prepared for this possibility. The subject matter is not usually part of their training. This month’s issue of Neurosurgical Focus seeks to change that by improving neurosurgeons’ understanding of the medicolegal climate in their field.
From the topic editors:
“This edition has been organized with sections describing general medicolegal overview, the international medicolegal milieu, medicolegal issues in spinal neurosurgery, and cranial neurosurgical medicolegal issues. We encourage all of you to read these articles and discuss their content locally in your residency training programs, in your hospitals, and at your state society meetings. We hope that by reading these papers, we are able to provide relevant and informative content that is useful for all neurosurgeons, at all stages of their careers.”
All articles in Neurosurgical Focus are freely available.
