Morbidity

Morbidity refers to the state of being diseased or unhealthy within a population.

Precise delineation of individualized risks of morbidity and mortality is crucial in decision making in neurosurgery.

Overall, the magnitude of medical errors in neurosurgery and the lack of focused research emphasize the need for prospective categorization of morbidity with judicious attribution. Ultimately, we must raise awareness of the impact of medical errors in neurosurgery, reduce the occurrence of medical errors, and mitigate their detrimental effects 1).
