Orthopedic Surgeon at Orthopaedic & Spine Institute

Meet Steven J. Cyr

Steven J. Cyr, M.D., is a Board Certified Orthopaedic Surgeon who received extensive training to specialize in the delicate science of Spine Surgery. Anyone who knows Dr. Cyr well will tell you that he is a man driven for quality and excellence. His high standards can be seen throughout his educational process and career. He received top honors at Southwest Texas State University by graduating Summa Cum Laude and Valedictorian with a Bachelor of Science in Biology. In addition to rigorous academics, he was also a member of the Bobcat football team during his three years at SWTSU.

Dr. Cyr gained early acceptance into medical school and earned his MD from the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio. He then began his service to the United States Air Force with a transitional internship at Wilford Hall Medical Center. He served the air force community as a flight surgeon for two years before beginning residency training in orthopaedic surgery at Wilford Hall. Following residency, Dr. Cyr was honored to be chosen from among the country’s top residents as the only fellow for the highly competitive and prestigeous spine fellowship at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota, which has been rated the number one orthopaedic and neurosurgical training program in America for the last 18 out of 20 years. Because Mayo combines these two fields, their surgeons gain an understanding of nerve and spine function unparalleled in most other programs. Upon completion of his fellowship, Dr. Cyr and his family moved back to San Antonio, where he is once again serving the military population as the Chief of Air Force Spine Surgery and Spine Surgery Consultant to the Surgeon General of the Air Force.

Dr. Cyr taught future air force surgeons in residency at Wilford Hall and has served our war wounded in Iraq at the Air Force Theater Hospital at Balad. He has brought innovative techniques to the military and was the first to perform the total disc replacement procedure. He specializes in complicated spine issues and has gained notoriety for successful repairs of failed surgeries on patients from numerous other states and the world.
