Meet Dr. Kramer
After receiving his DVM degree from the University of California, Davis, Dr. Kramer completed a year-long internship at Santa Cruz Veterinary Hospital in California, where he focused on small animal surgery and medicine. Following his internship, Dr. Kramer returned to the University of California at Davis for a 3-year small animal surgery residency. Upon concluding that intense residency and attaining ACVS board certification, he worked one year as a staff surgeon at a Santa Cruz, California referral practice, after which he joined a multi-specialty practice in Portland, Oregon where he was an associate surgeon for more than three years.
In 2010 Dr. Kramer was invited to work with Cornell University Veterinary Specialists at their multi-specialty private/academic hybrid advanced care facility in New England, where he had a central role in creating, establishing, and operating the hospital’s surgery department. Though the work was rewarding, his family and he underestimated their deep ties to and affection for the Pacific Northwest area, and they returned to Portland in 2012.
Dr. Kramer's surgical interests and experience include all aspects of orthopedic and soft-tissue surgery as well as neurosurgery. He gets immense satisfaction from his profession, but veterinary medicine is not all that he is about. After three years of military service and long before veterinary school, he lived in Europe for close to two years and spent a full year traveling in Asia. He had also explored Western and Eastern Europe, North, South, and Central America. Dr. Kramer enjoys camping, long-distance running, gardening, and reading. Most of all, he cherishes time spent with my human and animal family.
