Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Kraemer "I believe in patients fully understanding their illness and the reason(s) for their state of ill-health. I and my team work with the patient to improve his or her overall body health and then use surgical interventions at the proper time so that the patient experiences optimal healing and recovery. Patients are then taught how to care for and optimally prevent the need for further surgical care."
