Dr. John P. Deveikis, M.D., joined the UAB Department of Neurosurgery as Professor on March 1, 2014. Dr. Deveikis is a Neuroradiologist who characterizes and diagnoses neurological disorders through the use of medical imaging modalities. He comes to UAB from St. Petersburg, FL as an Interventional Neuroradiologist at All-Children’s Hospital and Bayfront Medical Center.

Dr. Deveikis’ previous academic appointments include Professor of Radiology and Neurosurgery at the University of Rochester, Professor of Radiology and Neurosurgery at the Medical University of South Carolina, Clinical Associate Professor of Neurosurgery at the University of Michigan Medical Center, Clinical Associate Professor of Radiology at the University of Michigan Medical Center, Assistant Professor of Radiology at the University of Michigan Medical Center, and Assistant Professor of Radiology at Georgetown University.            

He has served as a professional consultant in Interventional Neuroradiology at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, the National Naval Medical Center, and Georgetown University Hospital.

Dr. Deveikis received his Medical Degree from the University of Massachusetts Medical                School. He completed his fellowship training in Neuroradiology, at Georgetown University Medical Center and the University of Western Ontario.

Dr. Deveikis has presented for the American Society of Neuroradiology and the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, as well as many other professional and scientific organizations and conferences. He has over 49 published articles and is the co-author of Handbook of Cerebrovascular Disease and Neurointerventional Technique, 1st and 2nd Editions.

His major research interests are focusing on ways to make neurinterventional techniques more effective and safer, application of perfusion imaging techniques to neurovascular conditions to tailor interventions based on perfusion data, and avoidance of complications based on modifications of technique and patient selection.

Appointments can be made with Dr. Deveikis, by referral, by calling 205-934-7170.

Committed to high-quality, compassionate neurosurgical care


Our department's faculty consists of surgeon-scientists, as well as dedicated researchers, who strive to advance the field of neurosurgery through cutting-edge clinical and basic science research. We are actively translating discoveries into new potential treatment options for patients.


We are committed to training the next generation of neurosurgeons through our residency and fellowship programs. Our graduates consistently achieve desired positions throughout the field of neurosurgery, both in academics and private practice. 

Patient Care

Our neurosurgeons are experts in the treatment of brain tumors, neurovascular conditions, spinal disorders, functional disorders and pediatric conditions. The depth and breadth of our faculty's experience allow us to deliver outstanding care for the full spectrum of neurosurgical disorders.
