Interests

Dr. Kramer enjoys working within the subspecialized field of the foot and ankle and providing care and treatment for foot problems and ankle injuries. One of his favorite things about this field is all of the patients he gets to meet and help get back to an active lifestyle.

Outside of providing ankle and foot care for his patients, Dr. Kramer enjoys skiing, waterskiing, hiking, cycling, running, playing golf, and being outdoors. Above all, he loves spending time with his wife and two boys.

“Great visit overall, I thought all but one of Dr Kramer’s recommendations were solid. The basic advice was to go in and clean up the bone spurs and arthritis at some point. I agree completely. Then there was an offhand suggestion that I could qualify for a ankle fusion or ankle replacement because of my age. I would never do that. I bike 4000 miles a year and ski at least fifty days. I won’t see a surgeon that believes a fusion or replacement is a good fit. I saw Dr. Leland 10 years ago for an ankle reconstruction, so I could avoid a fusion. My father had two ankle fusions done at Mayo Clinic and can walk, but not do much else. The advice wasn’t a match for my lifestyle or the severity of my injury.”
