A neurosurgeon is a good career to get into and neurosurgeons will always be in demand for many years as long as people need the surgery performed by a neurosurgeon.

Becoming a neurosurgeon is not easy and requires lots of study in college courses and if you want to become a neurosurgeon it takes at least 14 years to become a neurosurgeon with all the studies involved.

But a neurosurgeon is a highly paid surgeon though and can earn from as much as $300,000.00 to $900,000.00

You need to study at least 4 years in undergraduate and also get your Bachelor's degree as well as another 4 years of study in medical school which is another 4 years plus other studies.

A neurosurgeon is a pretty highly paid surgeon when it comes to surgery.

The neurosurgeon makes an average annual salary of between $300,000.00 to as much as $900,000.00 depending on what hospital you're working at and how many hours you work.

You get paid just to stand by in the event you need to be called in or be there for performing the surgery which can happen at anytime since emergencies are not predictable and no appointments can be made.

The neurosurgeons do deserve all that money that they earn because it requires a lot of study and college education and skill to become a neurosurgeon.

And also as you gain more experience as a neurosurgeon your salary usually goes up.

A neurosurgeon will always be in demand and you cannot be easily replaced like on other jobs so you can demand a higher pay as you move up the ladder.
