Philosophy of Care: The key to exemplary care is individualized treatment plans and each patient is treated as a person, not a disease. Dr. Syre considers age, lifestyle, activity level, symptoms, pain and the patient's personal preference for treatment to ensure care is tailored to the individual's specific needs. Dr. Syre strongly feels that better outcomes happen when he knows and understands the unique individual.
About the Doctor: Dr. Peter Syre has always been interested in the neurosciences and studied it extensively. Dr. Syre is passionate about volunteering. Before stating medical school, he had the opportunity to serve in the Peace Corps in South America. While in medical school, he became fascinated with the intricacies of the nervous system and the complex bioengineering involved in the anatomy of the brain and the spine. Dr. Syre feels the precise nature of neurosurgery is a very rewarding practice. Dr. Syre completed his residency at the University of Pennsylvania where he pursued further fellowship training in the treatment of spinal disorders. He has a great interest in spinal scoliosis, spinal trauma, and tumors of the spine in addition to the breadth of neurosurgical diseases. He believes that the key to exemplary neurosurgical treatment is patient centered care where each treatment is individualized and each patient is treated as a person, not a disease. With this mindset, patients can have the best outcomes possible and both he and his patients can accomplish their ultimate goal, regaining their life.
When not at work Dr. Syre loves to spend time with his wife and children, exploring and hiking all of the parks Colorado has to offer and riding his bike.
