A word from our patients

PATIENT TESTIMONIALS ABOUT DR. CURYLO, M.D.


Spinal Surgeon St Louis

Dr. Curylo did an excellent job on my surgery, with an immediate improvement in my pain level. He was informative, kind, and patient. Spinal fusion surgery can be frightening – he helped me set aside my fear and do what was right for my long term health, without pressure..



This Friday marks my 1st anniversary as a back surgery survivor!  Every day when I roll out of bed without the horrific sharp knife like pains in my leg I say a grateful prayer for you, your skill, your ability to heal those in pain, providing quality of life one again for your patients.  Not only are you an amazing talented surgeon, but you are one compassionate caring in your bed side manner, also a great sense of humor!  Happy anniversary to us!



Spinal Surgeon St Louis

Thank you so much for your expert surgical care.  Spinal surgery is a very scary undertaking for a patient.  I’m very appreciative of your excellent skill in helping me.  Your reputation is well known and very much deserved.  I thank you for all you have done for me.
