Prior to working at Lutheran hospital Dr. Kuruvila was an Assistant Professor of Anesthesiology at The University of Colorado Health Sciences Center in Denver, Colorado. Dr. Kuruvila is from India and says he got his passion for medicine from his father, Dr. George Kuruvila who was a pioneer in private practice medicine in South India. His Father owned and operated a 100 bed multi disciplinary private hospital.
Dr. Kuruvila had his medical education at the prestigious JIPMER (Jawaharlal Institute of Post Graduate Medical Education and Research) in Pondicherry and did his graduate training in Anesthesiology at The University of Bristol Hospitals in Bristol, UK.

Dr. Kuruvila has dedicated his life to the care of the sick and suffering. He says that now he wants to focus more on Health and Wellness and feels that Spine medicine is more in that line. He has a lot of outside interests. First of all he loves people and he has a passion for skiing, biking, hiking and does yoga classes especially because his wife Lisa teaches yoga. His two sons were ski racers at a very high level and he has traveled all over the world with them for ski races. He says he started the spine medicine practice to fill the void when his sons stopped ski racing. He and his wife are still very active with the Rocky Mountain Ski Race Officials.
Dr. Kuruvila and his wife Lisa have had a passion for Health, Wellness and Beauty for a very long time and opened Blissful Med Spa in December 2007. BMS is a medical spa that specializes in Age Management with the latest state of the art technology for laser skin rejuvenation, laser body shaping and cellulite treatments in addition to having all the regular spa treatments. Lisa is a retired physician and she is a certified personal fitness trainer and a certified yoga instructor. Lisa is a great asset as she assists Dr. Kuruvila in taking care of the spine patients. The spine clinic which was on the hospital campus was moved into the new beautiful spa in December 2007.
