After graduating, Kyle started his career in New Jersey and spent 10 years gaining invaluable experience on the Orthopaedic Trauma Service for the local Level II Trauma Center.

He also has experience assisting in Spine surgery. Kyle has served as a Clinical Faculty Member for Drexel University’s Physician Assistant Program‘s surgical rotation since 2006, as a Surgical Rotation Preceptor.
“I chose orthopaedics because I’ve played and loved sports my entire life and enjoy the physical, hands-on nature of orthopaedics,” said Deuter. “I’m thrilled to be a part of Bone & Joint Institute’s team and look forward to providing patient-centered care to each patient that comes through our doors.”
Kyle is a member of the American Academy of Physician Assistants, volunteers with the South Bryan County Recreation Department as a youth coach, and holds a fourth degree Master Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do with over 30 years of Martial Arts experience.

He and his wife, Dawn, have been involved with the New Jersey Foster/Adopt Program, which led them to adopt three of their four children. Kyle and his family decided to move to South Georgia in the fall of 2014.
Dr. J. Matthew Valosen said, “We feel very blessed to have Kyle on board. He brings with him a wealth of experience that will greatly benefit the patients of BJI.”
