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.

Dr. Stevenson also embraces a team approach in his practice. Lauren Price, FNP-C, works side-by-side with him as his nurse practitioner. She is board certified by the American Association of Nurse Practitioners and also has past experience as a nurse practitioner in general orthopedics.

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.

Patient Stories

Becky Jones

Dr. Sarzier is a great guy, a great surgeon, has the best attitude and bedside manner. He did everything he could to keep me from having surgery until it became absolutely necessary. I fish and I deer hunt. I couldn’t sit in a boat for long periods of time and I couldn’t climb a deer stand because of my back pain. I would recommend Dr. Sarzier 10 times over. He helped me get my life back and doing the things I love.

Great staff! Very nice, cordial and helpful. Didn’t have to wait long to be seen by Dr. Aaron, which was also a very pleasant experience. I’m just beginning the diagnosis and treatment options for my condition, but I have full confidence in Dr. Aaron based on my initial visit!
