A new study from The Ohio State University reveals the difficulty doctors have finding new doctors to take care of the brain.
Researchers found that doctors in the brain stem were less likely to accept patients with brain injuries and more likely to see those with existing conditions as candidates for surgery.
They also found that the percentage of doctors accepting patients with traumatic brain injury had declined over time.
“There is no question that this is an urgent issue and we are not just talking about people with brain injury, we are talking about brain damage,” said Dr. Christopher Lasswell, a professor of medicine at Ohio State.
“The issue is getting a new surgeon and a new neurosurgeon to do the job.
We know there are a lot of people out there who can do the work, but the number of people who want to do it is just not there.
The brain stem is the one area that has no choice but to be opened up.”
Dr. Lassill’s research was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
Researchers looked at nearly 5,000 medical records from the U.S. and Canada and looked at the doctors who saw patients who had a brain injury and treated those who did not.
The doctors were asked if they would consider a new patient with a traumatic brain injuries diagnosis.
The majority of the doctors were either accepting or refusing to see patients who did have a brain trauma diagnosis.
The researchers also looked at whether the doctors felt that the person with a brain condition was worth taking care of.
In the study, the researchers found that a third of the physicians were willing to treat a brain damaged patient but they felt that those patients would be better off with other physicians.
The study was conducted between January 2018 and June 2019 and the data was based on more than 1,000 patients.
Dr. Laffler said the study has some limitations.
For example, it does not show whether doctors are more likely or less likely than other physicians to accept brain injury patients.
It does not look at the differences in the surgeons who saw the patients and the surgeons that treated the patients, and it did not look specifically at whether brain damage patients had more or less pain than the non-brain damaged patients.
“It was a very limited study,” Dr. Louisa McLean, an associate professor of pediatrics and a professor at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, said.
“It’s not that people are less likely, it’s that they were more likely than others to accept people with a diagnosis of brain injury.”
The researchers said that the finding that doctors were less willing to see brain damaged patients was consistent with other studies that have shown that doctors are less willing than others in their fields to treat patients with neurological conditions.
“If you see doctors are just not accepting patients, they have a hard time finding a good surgeon,” Dr Lass, who is also a neurosurgery professor at Ohio Wesleyan University, said in a statement.
“And they’re not accepting people who have more serious conditions like stroke or heart disease.
It’s just a matter of finding a surgeon who will treat people.”
Dr Lass said he hopes the study will help physicians make more informed decisions about whether to treat people with neurological or psychiatric conditions.
“There are certain conditions that require more surgery than others, and the more surgery you do, the more likely you are to get complications,” Dr, Lass explained.
“We know there is no right answer, but there are some things we can do to be more selective about what we do.”
Dr McLean said the results should be a wake-up call to doctors.
“If you’re going to treat someone who has brain injury,” she said, “you need to consider the person’s needs and make sure you get the right surgeon and the right surgery.”
Dr John Pertwee, a neuroscientist at the University of Texas Health Science Center, said that if doctors do not recognize the need for brain surgery, the brain will not heal properly.
He said he believes that doctors have been more reluctant to accept a brain injured patient in the past, especially in light of advances in imaging technology.
“A brain injury diagnosis is an important step in the treatment of this condition,” Dr Pert said.
