John A. Drkulec, M.D.

Originating from Windsor, Ontario in Canada, doctor John Drkulec now practices orthopedic surgery and is fellowship trained in sports medicine and arthroscopy at Arlington Orthopedic Associates in Mansfield. Doctor Drkulec received his degree of medicine in 1994 and completed his orthopedic surgery residency in 1999 from the University of Ottawa. He then completed his fellowship in Sports Medicine and Arthroscopy at the University of Western Ontario and has now been in practice for over 20 years.

Not only did doctor Drkulec follow in his father’s footsteps in becoming a physician, but he also has three sons, a loving wife and two dogs. He enjoys spending time wth his family, working out at the gym, and lounging on his back patio with his dogs in his free time.

Doctor Drkulec shared that his fondest memory was getting married at Sandals in Dunns River, but when asked what a little known fact about him was, doctor Drkulec’s surprising response was, “Most people don’t know that I play Modern Warfare.”
