About Lowell D. Stanley, Jr. M.D., FAANS

Dr. Stanley was born and grew up in West Virginia, USA. He graduated with High Distinction from University of Kentucky in 1978 then continued at University of Kentucky Medical School to graduate with honors in 1982.

He completed his neurosurgery residency in 1987 at University of Texas Southwestern Medical School (Parkland Hospital) in Dallas and then did a further year of fellowship specialty training in Skull Base Surgery in Hanover, Germany. After completing his board examinations and their required work, he was awarded board certification by the American Board of Neurological Surgery in 1991.

Dr. Stanley then went into private practice in 1987, while also attaining Clinical Professor status at University of Tennessee Medical Center. Subsequently, he took a several year sabbatical to help develop a neurosurgery program in Concepcion, Chile. Following successful implementation of that program, he returned to Tennessee where he helped found a new private practice concentrating on Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery.

After successfully establishing the new practice and developing the skills to perform nearly all spine surgeries using minimally invasive techniques, Dr. Stanley turned his interests to the Cayman Islands where he and his wife, Cecile, have been visiting and living part time over the past 28 years.

In May 2011 he began practicing at HSA (Georgetown) Hospital. Although he continues to perform the majority of his procedures at HSA, he is now working with Cayman Brain and Spine in The Strand Shopping Center. Since May 2011, he has been able to provide the people of the Cayman Islands with state of the art neurosurgical care including minimally invasive spine surgery as well as less invasive approaches to brain surgery.

Having been involved with cervical spine plating stabilization techniques since their introduction in the US in the 1990’s as well as newer techniques such as cervical disc replacement and kyphoplasty over the last decade he brings a wealth of experience to the medical community of the Cayman Islands.

In addition to providing state of the art spine surgery, he is available to provide coverage to A&E for emergency neurosurgical problems as well as seeing outpatients at Cayman Brain and Spine with problems involving peripheral nerves, the entire spine, brain and skull problems as well as pediatric neurosurgical problems such as hydrocephalus and spina bifida.

Dr. Stanley and his wife, Cecile, live full-time on Grand Cayman which allows him to be available for consistent evaluation and followup of his patients.
