In brief: Surgery
Neurologist treat things that are non-operatively treated.
Neurosurgeons are more focused on the surgical aspects of the patient's care.

In brief: Meds vs. surgery
Neurologists manage neurological conditions by medications and neurosurgeons by surgeries.
That's the brief breakdown minus bad jokes we make about the other side.
