Steven J. Cyr, M.D. is a Board-Certified Orthopedic Surgeon who received extensive training in delicate spinal procedures. Anyone who knows Dr. Cyr well will tell you that he is a man who strives for quality and excellence, as evidenced by his exceptional performance throughout his education and career.

Dr. Cyr graduated from Southwest Texas State University with a Bachelor of Science in Biology as Valedictorian with Summa Cum Laude honors. 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 M.D. 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 orthopedic surgery at Wilford Hall.

Following residency, Dr. Cyr was honored among the country’s top residents to be the only fellow for the highly competitive and prestigious combined Orthopedic and Neurosurgical Spine Surgery Fellowship at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota.


This training program has ranked number one for orthopedic and neurosurgical training programs in America for more than 20 years. The Mayo Clinic combines these two fields, giving their surgeons an unparalleled understanding of nerve and spine function, that most other programs lack.


Upon completion of his fellowship, Dr. Cyr and his family moved to San Antonio, where he served the military community as the Chief of Air Force Spine Surgery as well as the Spine Surgery Consultant to the Surgeon General of the Air Force and Pentagon.

For six years, Dr. Cyr taught orthopedic surgery residents, physician assistant fellows, and medical students at Wilford Hall and The Uniformed Services University for the Health Sciences. He also deployed to Iraq twice in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom, where he treated our service members as well as civilian casualties of war at the Air Force Theater Hospital at Balad Air Base/Camp Anaconda (LSA). The first to perform a total disc replacement procedure and endoscopic spinal surgery, Dr. Cyr was a pioneer of innovative techniques for the military.


He specializes in complicated spine conditions and has gained acclaim for successful repairs of failed surgeries across the country and around the world. Dr. Cyr’s expertise and skills have earned recognition and awards such as being named a Texas Super Doctor, America’s Top 10 Orthopedic Surgeons, and Castle Connelly Top Spine Surgeon for multiple years.


His patient testimonials are proof of his compassion, superior care, and his drive for excellence and quality. His training and character keep him at the leading edge with outcomes rarely seen in the delicate field of spine surgery.


He is excited about expanding into Houston and honored to treat patients with all conditions affecting the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine in both Houston and San Antonio.
