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. He utilizes a variety of non-surgical treatments to provide pain relief, improve function and help patients meet their individual goals.

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 and his staff are caring, friendly and professional. They always make you feel comfortable and important.

I have been being treated by Dr Kevin Stevenson for over six years. He was there for me when NO other doctor would help me ( due to the fact another doctor had messed up my back surgery) or fix the issue.Dr Stevenson who was suggested to me by my niece that had previously worked with him, was willing to look at all images and reports to see if he could do anything. He made no promises to me or my husband when we met with him. He didn’t tell us it would heal itself, didn’t say it would go away, didn’t say learn to live with it. In the contrary he gave us an option, something new we could try. We put all of our trust in him and went for it. After 4 days in ICU on trial procedure then two weeks later temporary placement I started to fell human again. Of course it wasn’t a complete fix of what had been done but it gave me hope and a shot at a continued life. I have issues and a local doctor than monitors when adjustments are needed. I trust Dr Stevenson with my life. I believe in him. He shoots straight and doesn’t sugarcoat things I owe him for giving me a chance at a rest of my life yes it is different but I am here.

Dr.Stevenson is an excellent neurosurgery specialist.He has your wellbeing at heart when he operates on you.Dr.Keven is an excellent surgeon very talented on spinal cord procedures.a I would recommend him to anyone wanting a doctor with heart.Thanks so much to doctor Stevenson for doing a great job during my surgery

Greatly impressed, I had been to several doctors with no lasting results. Dr. Stevenson listened to me, explained in detail my MRi, showed me a picture from my MRI and recommended what tests he needed to future diagnose me. His staff was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this doctor and staff.

Great staff. Dr. Stevenson was awsome. Enjoyed my visit. I trust him to help me figure this out.

Dr. Stevenson and all of his staff are the very best. I have been treated with nothing less than truly honest, kindness, care and concern. They have made me feel like family. They always have a spot on their schedule to see me within the week I call it's usually the day I talk to them. I will always recommend him. Absolutely wonderful!!

Very professional and understanding. Explained their plans to help and identify the spinal problems I have.

He was great very good bedside manner

Dr.Stevenson is very thorough in treating his patients. He will answer all questions. He has been my neurosurgeon since 2010 and has done 3 surgeries on me. I highly recommend him.

First. Off, the very first thing that struck me was how immaculate and clean the office was. Miss Renee in the front office was very efficient and very pleasant to work with, I was shown right back to a room and Dr. Stevenson came in and I felt immediately comfortable and I enjoyed his camaraderie, his expert opinion, and the way that he handled my particular situation.
