Dr. Tripuraneni's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Tripuraneni "Dr. Krishna Tripuraneni is a fellowship-trained orthopaedic surgeon. His practice is focused on total knee and hip replacement. He prefers an individualized approach to all patients. Each patient is unique and deserves respect, adequate time to listen to and address their personal concerns, and a treatment plan tailored to meet their specific needs. He continues to conduct research in an effort to create orthopaedic advances and strategies to improve the clinical care of his patients. Dr. Tripuraneni was drawn to orthopaedic surgery as a career because he felt this profession would allow him to help his patients immediately with both operative and non-operative solutions. Specializing in joint replacement enables him to provide his patients with clinical and surgical care that brings them pain relief, the ability to return to their daily activities, and to resume hobbies that they have not been able to do for months or even years. In his leisure time, Dr. Tripuraneni enjoys a variety of activities including running, skiing, and soccer. He also enjoys spending time with his family."

I have been seeing Dr Tripuraneni for 2 years for knee pain. Last year he performed a total knee replacement. The procedure & recovery were uneventful. I was up and walking the same day. I find him to be thoughtful and communicates & answers questions clearly. I highly recommend him to anyone...more

Dr. Tripuraneni did a superb job with my total knee replacement. Most of all, he understood my very active lifestyle and had me back with competitive horse riding 2 months to the day after surgery! It now has been 2 years, and I could not be happier. Best decision ever!! Thank you!!
