Dr. Sutker, a rare native of Charlotte, is thrilled to have returned to the Charlotte/Rock Hill/Ft. Mill area to bring Hand and Upper Extremity expertise to the OrthoCarolinaFt. Mill and Indian Land offices.
Dr. Sutker was awarded the Morehead-Cain Scholarship to attend the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, receiving his BS in Biology with honors and distinction. Recognizing a good thing, he continued at UNC for medical school, graduating with honors in 1991, and he completed his Orthopedic Surgery residency at UNC Hospitals in 1997.
He then went down the road to Duke University to complete a Hand, Upper Extremity and Microvascular Fellowship at Duke University Medical Center in 1998. Prior to returning home, Dr. Sutker was a Clinical Assistant Professor of Orthopedics at UT Health Sciences Center in San Antonio and a partner at the Hand Center of San Antonio. More recently, he was a partner at OptimOrthopedics in Savannah, Georgia helping to build a successful orthopedic healthcare network.
Dr. Sutker is excited to be returning to the area to provide care for all hand, wrist and elbow conditions. He has a special interest in wrist and elbow trauma, arthritic reconstruction of the hand/wrist, nerve and tendon injuries, wrist/elbow arthroscopy, total elbow arthroplasty and needle aponeurotomy for Dupuytren's disease.
Outside of the office, Dr. Sutker enjoys spending time with his wife Lisa, their twin young adult children, and their Goldendoodles, Finley and Jordy. He also likes to burn off steam fishing and road biking.
