Welcome to SASPINE.
SASPINE (Surgical Associates in Spine) is one of the nation’s most elite spine practice management companies. We now have offices in Houston as well as the San Antonio medical center. Our CMO, Steven J. Cyr, M.D., is a spine surgeon who has gained a reputation for surgical excellence in Texas, throughout the nation, and abroad. All of our providers are experienced at isolating the source of pain and accurately diagnosing and treating symptoms and conditions using both non-operative and operative means. We strive to treat the whole patient from the onset of pain to post-surgical rehabilitation.
Our philosophy is to seek conservative, non-surgical solutions for a patient’s neurological, muscular, or skeletal problems first. If non-surgical treatment fails to provide significant pain relief and surgery is required, our patients benefit from surgical procedures provided by world-class surgeons, including Dr. Steven J. Cyr, who trained at the prestigious Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. The Mayo clinic spine fellowship is a combined fellowship providing both neurosurgical and orthopaedic expertise to its fellows, making them experts in treating cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine conditions. Both the Neurosurgery and Orthopaedic departments have consistently been ranked number 1 in the country for more than 20 years. This unique approach provides patients with a level of care provided by few surgeons in the world. As a previous collegiate athlete, bodybuilder, and Orthopaedic surgeon, Dr. Cyr’s unique background enables him to understand the source of muscular and skeletal issues unlike many others. Coupled with fellowship training in Orthopaedic and Neurosurgery of the spine, his ability to diagnose the source of pain and identify solutions to address it are rare.
Dr. Cyr previously served in the United States Air Force as the Chief of Spine Surgery and Spine Surgery Consultant to the Surgeon General and the Pentagon. Dr. Cyr was also an assistant professor to the orthopedic surgery residents, physician assistant fellows, and medical students at Wilford Hall Medical Center and the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences. His extensive experience includes treating Level 1 trauma victims and combat injured Soldiers, Airmen, Sailors, Marines, and civilians during two tours to Iraq during Operation Enduring Freedom. This experience provided him with skills rarely seen in the private sector. His training also allowed him the opportunity to lend innovative techniques to the military. Dr Cyr performed the first total disc replacement procedure as well as endoscopic spinal surgery in the Air Force in addition to surgery for degenerative disc disease, herniated discs, failed back syndrome (revision surgeries for failed operations), spine trauma, scoliosis surgery, and cancer of the spine. He specializes in addressing complicated spine issues and has gained notoriety for successful repairs of failed surgeries on patients from numerous other states and around the world. He is a member of the Society for Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery but believes every patient must be evaluated individually and a treatment plan tailored to that patient’s diagnosis crafted to provide the best outcome, which commonly involves open procedures.
Dr. Cyr and his mid-level providers, who are hand-picked and specially trained by him, define success by the number of people who are able to live a better quality of life after treatment. In attention to his methodical and meticulous approach to surgical excellence, Dr Cyr is a man of character and compassion who believes in treating patients like family. This reputation is apparent in the heart-felt testimonies regularly provided by patients who have received his care. In addition, he has become world renowned as a premier provider of spine surgery with success rates rarely seen elsewhere. He has been named a Texas Super Doctor, Castle-Connelly Top Spine Surgeon multiple years in a row, and America’s Top 10 Orthopaedic surgeons, amongst many other recognitions and awards. We are excited to show you the SASPINE difference. Come see for yourself what sets us apart.
