Keeping Up With Advances in Neurosurgery

Healthcare Consortium Kaiser Permanente

Finding a specialist in your area can be a hassle. However, integrated medical care consortiums like Kaiser Permanente are able to guarantee excellence and expediency by incorporating multiple practices under one ‘umbrella’ team. The KP group promises that all of the doctors within their employ will measure up to and maintain their high quality of practicing health care, which not only gives their customers peace of mind but a standard of excellent healthcare.

A Neurosurgeon Isn’t Bound To The Operating Table

While the term ‘neurosurgeon’ tends to bring up an image of brain surgery, about 70% of the time, a neurosurgeon is working on your spine and issues that are caused by poor spinal health. The spine is the cause of many chronic and painful issues such as back pain, neck pain, and even leg pain. Herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, or even pinched nerves in this region can cause pain and various side effects throughout the body. This can make the source of this pain difficult to diagnose without seeing a nerve specialist such as a neurosurgeon.

Introducing Dr. Shayan Rahman

Practiced neurosurgeons like Dr. Shayan Rahman have to undergo years of medical training to become certified in their field, which is one of the reasons why Kaiser Permanente appointed Dr. Rahman as their Assistant Chief of the department of Neuroscience. During his time as a neurosurgeon, Dr. Rahman has published an impressive repertoire of studies since graduating in 2001 from the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), and has attended neurosurgery courses all over the United States. With his recent promotion, he continues to be a dedicated consultant to the Clinical Neurosurgery in the USA online publication and a dedicated professor at his alma mater, UCLA’s Medical School.
