Dr. George R Matcuk Jr

MD

Introduction

Dr. Matcuk received dual B.S. degrees in biology and chemistry at Carnegie Mellon University, and subsequently earned his M.D. from Stanford University.

He performed his radiology residency and musculoskeletal radiology fellowship at the University of Southern California, and was awarded Resident of the Year in 2008, both Fellow and Board Reviewer of the Year in 2009, and Teacher of the Year in 2011. Dr. Matcuk has co-authored over 30 journal articles and 80 educational exhibits and is currently working on a number of other projects, including original research. He enjoys daily teaching of USC medical students, residents, and fellows.

Dr. Matcuk enjoys the interpretation of musculoskeletal imaging studies, including x-ray, ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and communicating these findings with his clinical colleagues to optimize patient care. Dr. Matcuk also enjoys direct patient interaction during image-guided procedures and the relief he is often able to provide with steroid/anesthetic injections or radiofrequency ablation of tumors, such as osteoid osteomas.
