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

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.

The BEST physician I have ever had! He is genuinely concerned about your condition. He explains everything and gives YOU all options. Not knife happy!!!

I just got home from my first appointment with Dr. Stevenson and I am feeling a lot different than I usually do after my appointments. He really took the time to talk to me and reassured me that I am “not a lost cause.” It was nice to hear that because I’ve been feeling pretty hopeless for awhile now. Just a wonderful experience from The moment I arrived. His staff were all so nice as well. I can’t thank him enough for taking the time he did with me and being genuinely optimistic. He has a new, lifelong patient in me! 💜

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.
