Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Krummenacher "Dr. Krummenacher treats disorders of the hands, wrists, forearms, elbow and shoulders. Not all problems require surgery. The majority of his patients are managed with a course of splinting, therapy, injections and medications.  Dr. Krummenacher is well versed in both non-operative and surgical care of all disorders of the hand, wrist, forearm, elbow and shoulder. He treats all types of Upper Extremity Conditions including arthritis, trauma, fractures, nerve compression, hand and wrist deformities, infections and tumors, occupational injuries, sports injuries, and fingertip injuries, as well as revision of previous surgeries.  The hand is one of the most intricate and flexible structures in the human body, unsurpassed in sensitivity, mobility and strength. Care of the hand requires specialized attention – the type of attention that Dr. Krummenacher provides."

I would recommend Dr. K to any and everyone. He is very personable and easy to work with. He repaired my collarbone (which was broken into several pieces) and made me feel at ease throughout the surgery and recovery process. I’m so thankful for the care of Dr. K and his staff!
