"It will take time before a patient goes to surgery, but when they do it will be with a compete understanding and for a better outcome."
San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) May 02, 2012
President and Founder of OSI, Dr. Steven J. Cyr, M.D., FAAOS said, “the addition of the neurosurgery center continues to add to patient well being through a multi disciplinary approach to healing neck and back injuries and disease.” Patient outcomes will be improved as the center provides patients the most appropriate and effective care available anywhere.
Providers and surgeons at the Excellence in Neurosurgery Center are dedicated to identifying and correcting patient disorders and medical problems, allowing patients to live a fuller, pain free life. Some of the disorders that OSI can help patients with are spinal reconstruction, deformities, tumor and revision surgery.
Spinal disc herniation
Cervical spinal stenosis
Lumbar spinal stenosis
Spinal cord trauma
Traumatic injuries of peripheral nerves
Tumors of the spine, spinal cord and peripheral nerves
The latest addition of neurological specialists is Dr. Issada Thongtrangan, who received his Fellowship neurological training at the renowned Stanford University Medical Center.
Dr. Cyr is Mayo Clinic Fellowship trained, and together Dr. Thongtrangan and Dr. Cyr provide care in spine revisions as a primary practice of the neurosurgery center.
Dr. Cyr reports that the path leading to reconstructive surgery is generally six months long, and will consist of exhaustive testing to ascertain the true causes of patient pain and discomfort, before any surgery is performed. The integrative approach used in the Excellence in Neurosurgery Center means that the staff, providers and surgeons all use a single health patient record system, eliminating potential overlap and omission. The doctors take extra time with each patient to explain the process the whole way through so that the comfort zone and trust levels are as high as they can be prior to surgery. The patient understands the possible outcomes and moves forward with surgery with a full understanding. This patient process sets the Excellence in Neurosurgery Center apart from their peers and is the single reason for the growth of the center and for OSI.
