Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Kramer "Capitalizing on 25 years of experience within the field of orthopedics, I remain extremely cognizant of when surgery is necessary and when it is not, when therapy will produce the very same result with less risk and fewer complications and when only surgery will suffice.   I am a thoughtful person and doctor, and believe in spending time to clearly and completely explain, discuss and counsel people on their treatment and care before, during and after surgery.  As such, I am careful to adopt revisions to tried and tested surgical procedures upon thoughtful consideration of risks and rewards."

Patient Comments (1)
St Louis, MO |
Wait times are terrible, even when you are first patient seen. One time the doctor ran late at the hospital and there were six patients ahead of me (minimum wait time 90 minutes no matter what reception tells you!). My knee is still messed up. All he did was take x-rays and say "it's healing". When I said my knee was still swelling, he asked if I twisted it when I fell!? Seriously 5 months Then said they could offer some physical therapy?! What a waste of time and money!
Unfortunately, there are times when emergencies at the hospital must take precedence. Other times, patients make appointments for one issue and present with multiple issues that need to be discussed. I take pride in listening to each patient fully, and hope that I did the same for you. Fortunately for you, your injury will improve with time (many patients appreciate this reassurance.) A responsible surgeon should allow a patient to improve with time and therapy.
