Dr. Mark Dekutoski and The Mayo Clinic

October 16, 2016
Before joining The CORE Institute, Dr. Mark Dekutoski worked his way up the ranks in the field of orthopedic surgery and grounded his skills at The Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. The work he does now is general degenerative surgical work, but to get to the point of being able to be a general practitioner in this field he needed to develop his skills.

When Dr. Mark Dekutoski started at the Mayo Clinic in August of 1993, he was a Consultant for the Department of Orthopedic Surgery. This position allowed him to see a lot of cases and really hone in on his craft. He continued this position the full twenty years that he worked there but in July of 2004, he added Associate Professor of Orthopedics at the College of Medicine to his resume. This position allowed him to teach and share his findings and knowledge which brought him great satisfaction and he continues to enjoy educating to this day. And finally, in July of 2007, he became a consultant to the Division of Orthopedic Spine Surgery, Department of Orthopedics Surgery there at the Mayo Clinic. This position really allowed Dr. Mark Dekutoski to develop the skills which would become his speciality and is the field in which he is planning to work at The CORE Institute. Each of these positions helped prepare him to be the surgeon that he is today.
Mark Dekutoski has already served as Chairman of the Mayo Clinic Medical School Orthopedic curriculum and Chair of the Scoliosis Research Society and AOSpine North America Educational committees. These positions allowed him to help with decision making processes in his desired field and by lending his time to these causes he is able to help shape his field.
