In 1998 Dr. Krumins preformed a total knee replacement on my right knee. Since that was done I've never needed to have a revision and it is still functioning as good as new! I should mention that I was a heavy smoker and I made a decision to stop and Dr Krumins set me up with a patch and medication and I have been a non smoker since. This was absolutely a win-win situation for me and I am grateful that I had a orthopedic surgeon as great as Dr Krumins.

He was instrumental in the saving of my leg. His expertise and kindness made a very scary time much, much better.

Had foot surgery three years ago by Dr. Krumins. Pleasant Dr. but question his surgical skills because the treatment totally failed. I'm in the process of researching the best foot surgeon I can find in the Seattle/Tacoma area who can rectify my condition.
Tacoma, WA |
Didn't feel like Dr. Krumins was really paying attention to me when I was in the exam room and felt like I was rushed each time I was there. This was my second surgery but my first with Dr. Krumins. I can definitely tell the difference between the two. I still have pain and problems with my foot since the surgery and it's been over a year. I have had no problems with my other foot that was done by a different orthopedic surgeon three years ago.
