Spinal Surgeon and Icon, Mark Dekutoski

February 18, 2017
Dr. Mark Dekutoski loves to teach and that love of teaching probably comes from his lifelong love of learning. His education is quite impressive. It started with a B.A. from Albion University in 1982 and continued when he attended the Wayne State University School of Medicine and he officially became Dr. Mark Dekutoski, MD in 1986. He completed an internship in general surgery in 1987 and a residency in orthopedic surgery in 1991 from Wayne State. He followed that with a sting as a John H. Moe Clinical Spine Fellow at the Twin Cities Scoliosis Spine Center at the University of Minnesota in 1993.

Along with extensive research and writing experience and skill, Dr. Mark Dekutoski, M.D. has also spent time as a reviewer and collaborator for various and sundry medical journals and he has been an editor for numerous publications, such as a supplement for one of the most prestigious orthopedic journals in the world, Spine. In addition, he was on the Editorial Board for the Journal of Current Surgery for a while and also spent time as an Associate Editor for the Journal of Spine Disorders. All of this experience, combined with his time as a surgeon has improved his decision-making ability, even as it has helped him work to shape the future of the field of orthopedic spinal surgery.

There are many reasons why the CORE Institute sought out Dr. Mark Dekutoski and were anxious for him to join them. In addition to his considerable research prowess, they were also impressed with his ability to treat patients with compassion, as well as his ability and willingness and ability to help his profession to the next level by teaching the next generation of orthopedic surgeons the newest methods for treating patients and how to use them in a way that leads patients to leading healthier lives.
