Care Philosophy

As a Physiatrist (Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Doctor) and Pain specialist, I evaluate to find out what is causing the pain and limitation in function, and offer treatment to make it better. When a condition cannot be reversed, I endeavor to make it manageable. While many of my recommendations involve injection and therapies, a lot could be accomplished just by knowing what the issue is.

After suffering from Sciatica pain in rt.and left side for almost a year and total 3 epidural and knee injections, I decided to get a second opinion. Dr Krishnamurthy treated me and I have felt much better, pain gone just some tingling left.He is gentle ,efficient,sympathetic and professionally superb. The ease of getting appointment was an added bonus. I would recommend him without any hesitation. The best Pain Interventionalist around Twin Cities !

Dr K. is friendly, smart and caring. He uses anatomy books to show diagnoses and treatment options. I have seen many specialists, he is impressive at a time when many Dr's are not. Injections were easy and quick.
For the past 2 years the pain in foot & leg from a work injury has been unbearable. In about 10 minutes Dr. K found the problem & gave relief from the pain for the first time. He is a GREAT Dr.!

Dr. Krishnamurthy has helped my mother immensely. She has osteo arthritis and back issues. He is kind, he listens to her concerns and comes up with a plan of action. I would recommend him highly and have recommended him to many friends and family members in need of help for chronic pain.

Finally making progress on 15+ years of back and leg pain. So happy that he is willing to dig for the cause instead of just treating symptoms.

Dr. K was my doctor for many years at Sister Kenny at Abbott NW. He always called me by my name and was so interested in what I had to say and answered my questions in ways I could understand. I was sad when he left Sister Kenny but am happy I have found him once again. No matter how long between appointments he was always up to date on my chart and progress. He does talk a little fast sometimes but all you have to do is ask him to repeat himself slowly. Dr. K is very caring. Ines Lochart
