After residency, Dr. Kuremsky pursued a unique blend of subspecialty

Through this, he has experience and interest in the care of upper

With this extensive training, Dr. Kuremsky has developed broad
clinical interests, including wrist and elbow arthroscopic surgery, elbow

He also treats fractures of the upper extremity with a focus on elbow, wrist
and shoulder fractures, as well as performs endoscopic carpal tunnel releases

Dr. Kuremsky’s approach to patient care focuses on the individual needs
of each patient within the context of his comprehensive team, which
includes his staff, certified hand therapists and physical therapists.
Together, Dr. Kuremsky and his team can derive the best treatment plan
for each patient to suit their needs, lifestyle and activities.
Dr. Kuremsky continues to be involved in research, and most recently
published chapters on both arthroscopic elbow surgery and Tommy John
reconstructive surgery in the leading sports medicine textbook entitled
