Kevin Stevenson, MD is a Board certified neurological surgeon practicing in Macon, GA. After receiving his BA with honors from Augustana College in Rock Island, IL he went to graduate with honors from Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine in Chicago, IL.  He was chosen by The University of Pittsburgh to enter into their Department of Neurological Surgery to complete a residency in neurosurgery. Following a fellowship in complex and pediatric spinal neurosurgery, Dr. Stevenson began practice in Atlanta, GA and was subsequently recruited to Macon, GA where he now practices spinal neurosurgery.

Dr. Stevenson specializes in comprehensive care for spine disorders and believes in a comprehensive approach to the treatment of back pain and spine conditions, an approach that includes therapy, exercise and nutrition.

When surgery is necessary, he is trained and experienced in the most cutting-edge neck and spine procedures. Dr. Stevenson is the only physician in the area who performs the endoscopic rhizotomy, and one of just two or three in the entire state.

Ratings/Reviews

Dr. Stevenson took the time to explain everything in detail that he was going to be doing to help solve my back ache. I really appreciate his honesty.

First visit was amazing and instill day large amount of trust very quickly I really appreciate it

I just became a new patient of Dr Stevenson after researching his excellent patient reviews. I was extremely impressed with him during my first visit. His bedside manner is just remarkable!! I’m seeking relief (Revision surgery perhaps) from a failed fusion surgery two years ago from a different surgeon (an orthopedic surgeon). Dr. Stevenson listened to me and answered all questions very thoroughly!! He reviewed my recent scans and even explained an MRI I had done prior to the unsuccessful fusion and provided me his honest opinion, which I greatly appreciated. He suggested an updated MRI and even had his nurse submit the MRI request before I left the appointment with him. He realizes and empathizes about how severe and debilitating my symptoms and pain is! I am grateful that I’ve finally found a spine surgeon who has the knowledge, skills and expertise- but more importantly- a surgeon who actually cares about his patients!!! I very highly recommend Dr Stevenson!!

Two surgeries, totally professional yet recomendations are like those of a friend. Highly suggest if you need surgery, check him out.

Dr. Stevenson and his staff made me feel like a patient, not a number. Dr. Stevenson explained things to me in an unhurried manner and gave me the time and opportunity to ask questions. I am VERY happy to have discovered Dr. Stevenson and Optimum.

Dr Stevenson appeared more than willing to help, but he is ahackled by the VA. He wants an MRI, and we have to await approval from them.

Wonderful staff and physician. Dr Stephenson took the time to actually listen to me in order to understand exactly what my symptoms were. Great follow through on referral appointments. Just overall an exceptional experience.

Dr Stevenson and his staff made the hour drive worth while! Very professional and very helpful, so glad I was referred to them!

The office staff is very professional and friendly. They make you very comfortable when you first come in. Dr Stevenson listens to you and takes his time. You don't feel rushed. Would definitely recommend.

I was treated very well. Unlike Ortho Ga. I actually got to talk to a doctor. I felt like they cared for me and they didn’t treat me like I was just an object to make money off of. I went to the other orthopedic place and had a question and called several times a day for three days leaving messages and finally had to drive down there to get my question answered. I went here and left feeling like it was a much better experience. Nobody’s perfect but I feel like they are really trying to be. I highly recommend them.
