Dr. Curtin is not only one of the top surgeons in southern Arizona. Dr. Curtin is humble, good natured and respectfully considerate of his patients which also makes him a healer.

I had a painful back condition. I was stooped over and having to rely totally on a walker. Dr. Curtin performed spinal surgery. One year later I was white water rafting on the Colorado River. I remain pain free and 100% mobile.
