Emotional and Physical Healing by Dr. David Levy

The Steppin’ In Foundation hosts a conference on emotional and physical healing with special guest, Dr. David Levy, Nov. 1-2.

Dr. David I. Levy is a neurosurgeon who practiced high-risk neurosurgery for more than 20 years, specializing in surgery of the blood vessels of the brain. After attending medical school at Emory University in Atlanta, he obtained neurosurgical training at Barrow Neurological Institute in Phoenix, under Dr. Robert Spetzler, a pioneer in vascular neurosurgery. After completing a fellowship at the University of Vienna, Austria, Dr. Levy was one of the first neurosurgeons in the United States to be specializing in both endovascular neurosurgery and performing minimally invasive surgery on brain vessels without opening the head, entering through the femoral artery in the patient’s leg.

Dr. Levy has published numerous scientific articles on neurosurgical topics. The book Gray Matter: A Neurosurgeon Discovers the Power of Prayer…One Patient at a Time, published by Tyndale House in 2011, details the dramatic intersection of medicine and faith, and the power of forgiveness.
