More About Dr. Krumme
Following medical school Dr. Krumme began his residency at the University of Missouri.
He noticed during residency that several patients required specialized procedures that were not offered at several hospitals during his training.
This inspired him to seek expertise in musculoskeletal oncology and complex joint reconstruction in Washington D.C. and Virginia. While in Washington and Virginia, Dr. Krumme learned and collaborated with multiple world experts in sarcoma care and musculoskeletal radiology and pathology. He now has the opportunity to provide specialized procedures at multiple hospitals in the Kansas City area.
Following his fellowship training, Dr. Krumme was excited to rejoin his mentors in Kansas City to help take care of the complex issues in the region. He has joined multiple tumor boards and physician teams in order to create a multidisciplinary approach to better treat each individual cancer patient’s needs. He was even more excited to continue this service at multiple large hospital centers in the Kansas City area to better reach his patients.
Dr. Krumme has continued his dedication to optimizing the care of all facets of musculoskeletal oncology and joint reconstruction surgery. He has presented research at multiple Musculoskeletal Tumor Society meetings and has made nationwide connections. He and his family are also committed to community service and participate in national cancer awareness programs. Dr. Krumme is also dedicated to providing service to the underserved and has gone on multiple medical missions to Guatemala and India.
Dr. Krumme is also excited about continuing his medical teaching career at UMKC, where he received some of his education. He enjoyed his time teaching the residents and medical students at Georgetown University, George Washington University, and Virginia Commonwealth University as a surgical fellow, and he enjoys bringing his skills back to a new generation of surgeons at UMKC.
Outside of Work
Dr. Krumme remains dedicated to research and advancing the fields of adult reconstruction and musculoskeletal oncology. He recently published work on novel bone fixation systems that was presented at international meetings. He has also co-authored multiple journal articles over the last 5 years.
In his free time, John, his wife, Virginia, and their 3 daughters enjoy spending time outside with family and friends and exploring the Kansas City area. He also enjoys watching his daughters compete in dance, gymnastics, and athletics.
