Dr. Krompinger treats adult patients with spinal injuries and degenerative conditions of the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine. He completed a residency in Orthopedic Surgery at the University of Connecticut. From here, Dr. Krompinger went to Upstate Medical Center, Syracuse, New York for a fellowship in Spinal Surgery. He has over 25 years of experience as a spinal surgeon. Special interests include minimally invasive spinal surgery, spinal reconstructive surgery, including spinal fusion and disc replacement surgery.

Fortunately, a significant number of patients respond favorably to non-operative treatment. Surgery is considered only after proper conservative treatment is delivered and monitored. The operations include minimally invasive and standard approaches to disc problems and spinal instability. These procedures include disc replacement surgery, decompression surgery and spinal fusion surgery.

Dr. Krompinger has multiple professional affiliations, both locally and nationally. He is co-director of the Hartford Hospital Spine Center, where safe and effective spinal surgical techniques are practiced and refined. He is also the Assistant Director of the Department of Orthopedics at Hartford Hospital. He is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons (FACS), and member of the North American Spine Society, the American Association Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS), and the Spine Arthroplasty Society.

Dr. Krompinger and his wife are both from Connecticut where they have raised their family and have strong ties to the community.
