Request an Appointment

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. He offers patients who have arthritis pain in their back this simple, outpatient procedure that could significantly reduce their pain and suffering.

Ratings/Reviews

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.

The stuff was helpful and kind. Dr. Stevenson was thorough when reviewing my information and options for me.

It was great.

Dr Stevenson is a great doctor, who you can tell loves what he does. I recommend Dr. Stevenson to anyone.

Excellent service from a very friendly and efficient staff. There was a little wait time because Dr. Stevenson spends time talking with each patient and listens to your questions and concerns. I love that! He is a certified Neurosurgeon but also does Orthopedic too. He will do everything possible to help treat you if surgery is not the only option. He has the perfect bed side manner and is so easy to talk to. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Stevenson is very knowledgeable, professional, and realizes how the human body interacts together. He is not just zeroed in on one aspect while missing out on other important issues that can be wrong. Dr. Stevenson is willing to work with other specialists for the greater good of the patient.

I am very pleased with the care Dr. Stevensons' has given me.
