Web Site Purpose

The goal of this web site is for neurosurgical patients to receive better care from all involved through understanding of medical information. To receive optimal care, health care providers as well as family members and friends must all take an active role in the care of the patient. Given the limited time alotted for patient contact and the variable educational levels of different health care providers, better understanding of the neurosurgical problem and treatment options by all involved can result in better outcomes.
