In brief: Either

Either a neurosurgeon or orthopedic surgeon who specializes in spinal surgery are qualified to diagnose and treat spondylolisthesis.
Treatment can range from conservative, nonoperative therapies (medications, physicial therapy) to complex surgical correction.

In brief: Both are ok

Both neurosurgeons and fellowship trained orthopaedic surgeons treat spinal disorders.
It is worth your time to learn about your surgeon before considering surgery. Hopefully, your primary care doctor can help to point you in the right direction. The most important thing to do is to make sure that the surgeon you choose has expertise in treating your problem. Check out healthgrades.Com.
