Deepshikha Student Expert 30th Mar, 2020
A neurosurgeon can be understood as a a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and surgical treatment of disorders of the central and peripheral nervous system.
Coming to your question, neurosurgeons or any doctor for that matter, has no fixed schedule. Sometimes they have to work throughout the day without any rest. A doctor's time is for the patient.
The schedule is different for different doctors depending upon the hospital he works in or the number pf patients.
Hope this helps.
Good luck.

USA is far more developed than India. They have better hospitals, medical equipment, and their doctors and nurses are well-trained. India is densely populated and the conditions of Government Hospitals is not good.

Salary of Neurosurgeons is comparatively high in USA than India. Also the working hours of a Neurosurgeon is more and hectic in USA than India.

So, Overall USA is a better choice to work for a neurosurgeon though the working hours are more but for that you will be paid more.

Shaurya Kapoor 22nd Mar, 2020

Neurologists can work in hospitals or in private offices. Their average week is approximately 40 hours . If you go into this career and would like to maintain consistent hours , then opening up a private practice or working in a research or medical school may be better for you.


Are Neurosurgeons rich in the USA?

Suryashis Chakraborty 22nd Mar, 2020

Hello Raja,

Neurosurgeons happen to be the most highest paid physicians (physician careers are the highest paid among all occupations). Neurosurgery attracts only the finest in the medical field and the job is very demanding in terms of time and handling of the cases resulting in scarcity of neurosurgeons.

The MGMA Physician Compensation Report states the average neurosurgeon income at $775,968 per annum. The median income is $704,170 per annum. The lowest paid neurosurgeon earns at least $350,000 annually while the top 10 percent make up to $1,229,881 a year.

Hope this helps you. We wish you the best for your future endeavours!
