Robbie D. Lowery, MSN, RN, NP-C

Robbie Lowery’s interest in the care of neurosurgical patients began with her first employment as a registered nurse in the neuro intensive care unit at Baptist Hospital in 1980. While a staff nurse at the hospital, she provided post-operative care for patients undergoing cranial surgery. In 1983, she started her career with Semmes Murphey Clinic (SMC) as a nurse for Dr. James T. Robertson and Dr. Jon Robertson (both neurosurgeons at SMC.) During that time, she was introduced to a variety of neurosurgical conditions in addition to caring for patients in the outpatient setting. From 1985-1991 she worked with neurosurgery at The Regional Medical Center caring for patients with spine and head trauma. Then in 1991 she returned to Semmes Murphey to work full time with Dr. Jon Robertson, who specialized in the care of skull base tumors.

While she had learned a great deal from her various training, she wanted to further her education and returned to The University of Memphis to complete the requirements for certification as a family nurse practitioner (FNP). After passing FNP boards in 2008, she started working as a nurse practitioner at SMC. Her practice is limited to new patient evaluations for spine pain, carpal tunnel symptoms and post-concussion follow ups in the pediatric population.

When away from work, she enjoys working in her yard, travelling and going to University of Memphis Basketball games.
