Dr. Galuk's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Galuk "I chose medicine because I've always been fascinated by anatomy and the mechanics of the human body. I grew up on a farm and enjoyed fixing things with my hands. Orthopaedic surgery allowed me to combine my love of anatomy and mechanical repair in a truly exciting and gratifying way. Injuries and degenerative diseases happen to almost everyone. God has given me the opportunity to help people in all walks of life including the mission field." "I very much enjoy patient interactions and seeing patients transition from pain and apprehension to restored function and confidence. It is impossible for me to separate my faith from how I practice. I strive to treat each patient as a child of God and to provide the best care possible, regardless of their status." "My primary interests lie in loving God with everything I have. I enjoy snow boarding, water sports, piloting small aircraft and serving Christ with my family in overseas missions."
