About Derek Buck, M.D.

Derek S. Buck, M.D., D.C. is an Interventional and Spine Care Specialist, and Physiatrist at Monument Health’s Orthopedic & Specialty Hospital in Rapid City. Dr. Buck enjoys helping his patients feel better and works to ensure that they respond positively to treatment. He has found that the most rewarding part of his job is seeing his patients regain and improve their quality of life.

A typical day for Dr. Buck includes diagnosing and treating spinal conditions using minimally-invasive techniques. As evidence-based care guides his diagnoses and treatments, he uses data-driven research paired with experience to determine a patient’s source of pain and develop the best possible treatment plan.

Dr. Buck obtained his bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology & Sports Medicine at East Texas State University, and a bachelor’s in Biology/Pre-Chiropractic at the University of Texas. He received his medical degree from Ross University School of Medicine on the island of Roseau Dominica, located in the West Indies. Dr. Buck went on to receive his Doctor of Chiropractic at the Texas Chiropractic College. He completed his residency in physical medicine and rehabilitation at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, and received his fellowship training in Interventional Spine Care at Virginia iSpine Physicians in Richmond, Virginia.

Before becoming an Interventional and Spine Care Specialist, Dr. Buck was a sports medicine chiropractor. As his knowledge and skill set grew during his 10 years of chiropractic practice, he wanted to provide more care options for his patients, and found interventional spine care to be the best path forward.

When he’s not in the office, you’ll find Dr. Buck and his wife cheering for their kids from the sidelines at their sporting events. He and his family also love spending time outdoors, kayaking, canoeing and camping whenever they have the opportunity.
