P. Ryan Lingo, M.D

Dr. P. Ryan Lingo is a board-eligible neurosurgeon with expertise in brain, skull base, spine, and peripheral nerve surgery, including minimally invasive spine and cranial procedures.

He is a native of Columbus, GA and earned his undergraduate degree in biology from the University of Georgia. He graduated from Mercer University School of Medicine as a part of the inaugural Savannah campus class. He then went on to complete his neurosurgical residency at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center and the Semmes Murphey Clinic in Memphis, TN, training in the latest cranial and spine techniques. During his residency, he learned from pioneers in the fields of skull base and minimally invasive spine surgery and completed a six-month international fellowship in skull base and vascular neurosurgery at Southmead Hospital in Bristol, England. Throughout his training, he has contributed novel research findings to neuroscience and neurosurgery by authoring original scientific articles, book chapters, and practice guidelines. He is an active member of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, Congress of Neurological Surgeons, and Southern Neurosurgical Society.

Dr. Lingo maintains a general neurosurgical practice, evaluating and treating patients with brain, spine, and peripheral nerve disorders. His interests include: neuro-oncology, meningiomas, skull base tumors including pituitary tumors, trigeminal neuralgia, Chiari malformations, neurovascular conditions such as aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations, spinal tumors, degenerative neck and spine disease, carpal tunnel syndrome, and ulnar neuropathy. He is trained in minimally invasive spine and cranial techniques, neuroendoscopy, and stereotactic radiosurgery.

Dr. Lingo understands each patient is an individual and will work with you to formulate a unique treatment plan that best suits your needs. He strives to meet your expectations by providing ample time to discuss concerns, answer questions, and fully explain conditions and surgeries. When considering surgery for pain, he believes in exhausting less invasive treatments first. If ultimately indicated, he will select the most precise surgery for your symptoms and pathology in order to speed your return to work and life. Dr. Lingo and his team at the Neurological and Spine Institute look forward to helping you through expert and compassionate neurosurgical care.
