Neurosurgeons happen to be the most highest paid physicians (physician careers are the highest paid among all occupations). Neurosurgery attracts only the finest in the medical field and the job is very demanding in terms of time and handling of the cases resulting in scarcity of neurosurgeons.
The MGMA Physician Compensation Report states the average neurosurgeon income at $775,968 per annum. The median income is $704,170 per annum. The lowest paid neurosurgeon earns at least $350,000 annually while the top 10 percent make up to $1,229,881 a year.
Hope this helps you. We wish you the best for your future endeavours!
