My neurosurgeon does both - microsurgery and radiosurgery.  He's not long out of his schooling, so maybe that's why. He was probably open to all the "modern" methods!!

Kind of sounds like maybe younger neurotologists are doing both microsurgery and radiosurgery these days.  Maybe some of the older docs only specialize in one or the other?  ???
