The inherent risk of operating on the brain and spine is high. The American Association of Neurological Surgeons reports that 60% of all procedures preformed by neurosurgeons are actually spine-related. Due to the contact with these highly sensitive and fragile parts of the human body, the specialty of neurosurgery is generally rated in the highest risk category by medical malpractice insurance companies.
