A neurosurgeon office visit for a new patient is a first-time visit with a neurosurgeon who specializes in surgical and medical diseases of the brain, spine, and nerves, and conditions that affect the flow of blood to the brain. Common procedures performed by neurosurgeons include anterior cervical discectomy and laminectomy. A new-patient office visit is needed if you have never seen this doctor and would be new to the practice, or it has been over 3 years since you last saw this doctor. /span>
