About

I was born and raised in Lexington, Ky. My wife, children and I are happy to be back in the Bluegrass, where I enjoy providing cutting-edge hand, wrist and elbow care for the region. I'm an avid UK sports fan and enjoy cheering and treating the athletes who wear the blue and white!

Personal Statement

Orthopaedic hand, wrist and elbow surgery allows me to care for newborn babies, octogenarians and everyone in between. Our hands allow us to experience and interact with the world, and it's a privilege to be able to restore function to patients with a variety of problems.

    Dr. Kluemper is a great doctor and a gentleman. He is a straight shooter and that's hard to find when you are setting up a very meticulous hand surgery. I trust him; that says it all.

      Dr Kluemper took significant time to help me understand the problems in my wrist, the complexity of the situation and what could be done to improve it. He described the surgery and the recovery, and explained that I should have a very good chance of pain relief, though I shouldn't expect to have my younger wrist of years ago. He was patient and considerate while answering all my questions. I look forward to working with him.

      We saw a student doctor and then Dr. Kleumper, and they both were great! This doctor was honest about the difference this surgery would make. My son is 17 and I appreciate that honesty. His thumb is moving enough now that he's decided not to do the surgery. Thank u sir and, ur team! U truly have a great group of people working there!

      This was a second opinion apt. Dr. Kluemper listened to my opinion about my care and had great bedside manor.

      Almost every person there (the PA, the nurses, the lady who came in prior to the doctor-i can't remember her title) was extremely nice and helpful. The doctor tried very hard to answer all of my questions thoroughly and discuss our options without rushing. I feel like his overall judgments and decisions were correct, and that he is excellent at his job. However, when I brought up another's opinion on my injuries, he rolled his eyes. He also disregarded a few of my concerns without talking through why he was disregarding them. So I think he performed his job excellently, but I wish that he had been nicer in his approach.
