Dr. Carrie Diulus
Carrie A. Diulus, M.D., is one of just a handful of board-certified female orthopedic spine surgeons in the country. As a surgeon, she believes in using a holistic approach with every patient she sees. She is the medical director of the Crystal Clinic Spine Wellness Center, in Akron, Ohio. Prior to joining the Crystal Clinic in 2014, she was a spine surgeon at the Center for Spine Health at the Cleveland Clinic. She treats a range of degenerative and sports-related spine conditions. She has a special interest in the role of nutrition, sleep, meditation, exercise, and stress management in orthopedic surgery and chronic pain. As a result of struggling with her own health and weight, she now eats a plant-based diet and incorporates these principles into her own life and into the treatment of her patients. Dr. Diulus has co-authored textbook chapters, and her research in orthopedics, pathology, and biomaterials has been published and presented at both national and international meetings.
