Top doctors, best doctors, your doctors: Mayfield physicians recognized for excellence

CINCINNATI – Patient care is at the forefront at Mayfield Brain & Spine, with neurosurgeons and specialists at the independent neurosurgery practice continuing to be recognized among the region's best.

In rankings from local publications, Mayfield physicians earned recognition among the most highly regarded clinicians in surveys of other doctors and patients. They served more than 30,000 patients in 2023.

"Generations of patients and families have known the quality care and innovative expertise that Mayfield offers," said Mark Vorherr, chief executive officer. "Our independence allows us to serve patients when and where they need care, and our physicians have upheld that legacy with nationally recognized excellence."

Mayfield neurosurgeons diagnose and treat brain and spine disorders including brain tumors, brain aneurysms, stroke, Chiari malformation, scoliosis and spinal deformity. Their expertise ranges from minimally invasive procedures to open cranial and spinal surgeries, and they operate in the region's leading hospitals to bring care closer to patients.

Mayfield's interventional pain physicians and physical medicine & rehabilitation specialists help patients with acute or chronic back and neck pain with minimally invasive interventions such as steroid injections and spinal cord stimulation trials.

In its Top Doctors edition, Cincinnati Magazine featured Dr. Andrew Ringer's care for a patient named Jamie, who suffered a stroke and underwent a procedure called a thrombectomy to remove the clot in an artery inside her brain. The case highlighted the technology used by neurosurgeons to resolve complex cases such as strokes, including an early-alert system that relies on artificial intelligence to identify potential stroke patients. Along with that technology, Jamie's family quickly recognized her symptoms and got her to the hospital, enabling her to restore strength and function after the surgery. Find the story at

"Bringing the most effective technology to the operating room improves outcomes for our patients," Dr. Ringer said. "Even more important is the determination of patients like Jamie and the awareness of her family in recognizing the symptoms of a stroke. For decades, Mayfield physicians have served our community with leading-edge neurosurgical care and public education, and we are committed to sustaining that care for generations to come."
