Medical Malpractice Insurance
In today’s highly disputative medical field, medical malpractice lawsuits run rampant. Each medical specialty is ranked by medical malpractice insurance companies based on the potential of a claim and the ensuing lawsuit’s financial repercussions. The inherent risk of operating on the brain and spine is high. The American Association of Neurological Surgeons reports that 60% of all procedures performed 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 one of the highest risk categories by medical malpractice insurance companies.
National Neurosurgical Procedural Survey
According to a recent national neurosurgical procedural statistics survey:
- There has been a 6% increase in female neurosurgeons in the last decade.
- Approximately 22,00,000 neurological procedures are performed each year in the United States.
- Roughly 62% of neurological procedures are spine related.
- Over 185,000 lumbar disc laminectomies were performed in 2010, making it the most common surgical spine-related procedure.
- Supratentorial craniotomy is generally the most common cranial procedure with over 56,000 procedures per year.
Medical Malpractice Insurance Coverage for Neurosurgeons
Due to the potential risks experienced by a patient and the high cost of care if there is an incident leading to a patient’s long-term disability, medical malpractice insurance companies charge high premiums when covering a neurosurgeon’s practice. The litigation that causes high insurance premiums for doctors who are simply concerned with helping their patients is the unfortunate reality of today’s medical field.
