DR. JAY KROMPINGER specializes in orthopedic spinal surgery. After graduating from the University of Notre Dame, he earned his medical degree from the University of Connecticut School of Medicine. He trained in general surgery at Brown University, orthopedic surgery at UConn Health Center and spinal surgery at Toronto General Hospital. He completed a fellowship in spinal surgery at Upstate Medical Center. In practice for 25 years, he is co-director of Hartford Hospital’s Spine Center and assistant director of the Department of Orthopedic Surgery.
He was drawn to this specialty as technology was rapidly evolving and offering more diverse treatment options. “The next wave is genetics testing for degenerative disc problems,” he predicts. “It will have an impact across orthopedics, including genetic testing for hip and knee arthritis.” He is proud that the Spine Center at Hartford Hospital, the area’s top spine and trauma center, emphasizes patient safety in the course of achieving superior outcomes.
