John D. Davis, IV, MD
After rotating on several surgical specialty services, Dr. Davis was drawn to neurosurgery because it combined definitive structural solutions with the complexity of the nervous system. He has over 17 years of experience in neurosurgery. Dr. Davis specializes in evaluation and surgical management of spinal problems, particularly those involving nerve root compression (pinched nerves) or spinal cord compression. He enjoys the immediate and dramatic relief of pain the patients experience after a visit, which restores normal function to their lives.
Dr. Davis' clinical interests research from his residency years centered around the management of cervical spine problems. However, almost half of his practice is in the treatment of lower back or lumbar spine problems.
Dr. Davis was born in Starkville, Mississippi, and has sent most of his life calling Mississippi his home state. He attended primary and secondary schools in the Jackson area, spent his college years at Mississippi State University. Then, he was bound for medical school at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
Dr. Davis returned home to Mississippi after he completed his residency to join Dr. Lynn Stringer, another founding member of NewSouth NeuroSpine, in private practice.
