Dr. Hutter is a general orthopedic surgeon treating a variety of conditions including athletic injuries, arthritic conditions, fractures as well as neck and back pain. He has been in practice in the community since completing his orthopedic residency in 1988. Initially a trauma surgeon, Dr. Hutter has extensive experience with knee and shoulder arthroscopy and lumbar pain management.

Dr. Hutter has extensive expertise in orthopedic occupational medicine and is skilled in treating workplace injuries. He understands the importance of prompt diagnosis and treatment to get patients back to work quickly and safely.

He was a contributing and reviewing editor for the AAOS 2003 Body Almanac, a book for the lay population on bone and joint health.

He has been an Assistant Team Orthopedic Surgeon for the Red Bull and Metrostars professional soccer teams, the NJ Gladiators of the Arena Football League and the NJ Storm of the National Lacrosse League. He has also served as an orthopedic consultant to various local high schools.

Dr. Hutter is currently a lecturer at Howard University College of Medicine, his alma mater. He lectures to the orthopedic residents as part of their academic program.
