Meryl Alton Severson III
Instructor in the Department of Neurosurgery

A strong desire to serve my country and others led me to join the military and become a physician. I separated from active service after serving eight years at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center caring for our nation’s heroes, family members, and retirees. Compassionate, honest, evidence-based care of the whole patient with a commitment to quality is my top priority. It is important to me that you understand your condition as well as the risks and benefits of all the non-surgical and surgical treatment options available to you. As a well-informed patient, we will make a decision together about what is right for you and your unique situation. My goal is to help you improve your symptoms without surgery whenever possible. If surgical intervention is needed, my focus is providing this as safely as possible via a multi-disciplinary approach to achieve your best results.
