"Patient outcomes will be improved as the neurosurgery center provides patients the most appropriate and effective care available anywhere."
San Antonio, Texas (PRWEB) May 02, 2012
The Center for Neurosurgery is pleased to announce that Steven J. Cyr, M.D., who is a Board Certified Orthopaedic Surgeon and received extensive training to specialize in the delicate science of spine surgery has joined the neurosurgery centers at the Orthopaedic and Spine Institute's Medical Centers. Dr. Cyr is driven to quality and excellence in patient outcomes, and was recently named to the Top 10 orthopedic surgeons in San Antonio.
He received top honors at Southwest Texas State University, graduating Summa Cum Laude and Valedictorian with a Bachelor of Science in Biology. Dr. Cyr gained early acceptance into medical school and earned his medical degree from the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio.
He completed his residency and internship in the United State Air Force, and following his residency, Dr. Cyr was chosen from among the country’s top residents as a fellow for the prestigious spine fellowship at the Mayo Clinic located in Rochester, Minnesota. This training program has ranked number one for orthopaedic and neurosurgical training programs in America for the last 20 years. Mayo orthopedic fellowship combines these two fields, giving their surgeons an understanding of nerve and spine function unparalleled in most other programs.
Dr. Cyr’s expertise and skills are now available to civilian patients at the Orthopaedic and Spine Institute, where his passion for excellence and quality keep him at the leading edge of spine surgery and revision surgery.
All 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, and where possible, a pain free life. Some of the disorders that OSI can help patients with are spinal reconstruction, deformities, tumor and revision surgery.
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 nature of patient pain and discomfort before any surgery is performed. The multispecialty approach used in the Excellence in Neurosurgery Center means that the staff, providers and surgeons all use a single health patient system, eliminating potential overlap and omission. The center nurses and doctors take extra time with each patient to explain the process the whole way through, so that the patient comfort zone and trust levels are as high as they can be prior to surgery. Center patients understand the possible outcomes and move forward with surgery with a complete 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 at OSI.
