Medical training in both Canada and the U.S. provided the foundation for a distinguished career in plastic surgery. He worked as a general practitioner for 2 years prior to choosing plastic surgery as his specialty. Dr. Gutek performs a wide range of cosmetic and reconstructive procedures. Discerning patients come from around Kansas City and beyond for his services.

Dr. Gutek has seen significant advances in all areas of plastic surgery. "Maintaining a place at the forefront has been rewarding and stimulating," he says. "Plastic surgery is a continuous learning experience. It's such an advantage to work in a group and collaborate with some of the brightest plastic surgeons in Kansas City. Each surgeon is able to share their experiences in different training programs." He also enjoys sharing challenging cases with other surgeons within the practice.

Throughout his career, he has noticed that people are working later into life, so more people are getting procedures to maintain a youthful look in the workplace. Plastic surgery after significant weight loss has also become more common. "People today are leading healthier lives," Dr. Gutek says. "They want to look as good on the outside as they feel on the inside."

Dr. Gutek has shared his expertise by speaking at many educational and professional venues nationwide, covering various topics within plastic and reconstructive surgery. Dr. Gutek is also a recipient of the Humanitarian Award for Medical Missions. He and his staff have performed medical mission trips to Romania, the Philippines, India, and Ecuador. These missions serve the underprivileged in delicate surgeries to correct congenital and traumatic injuries — surgeries they might never have without the skills of volunteers such as Dr. Gutek.

Dr. Gutek's expertise and keen eye have earned him a large following throughout the region. "I think one of the nicest compliments I ever received was when a patient said that I had lived up to my reputation and met their expectations."
