Dr. Steven Klumb is a foot and ankle reconstructive surgeon at United Regional. He evaluates foot and ankle trauma and sports injuries, determining whether the condition requires surgical intervention, physical therapy, or another form of medical management.
Dr. Klumb graduated from Purdue University in Indiana and obtained his medical degree at Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine in Cleveland, Ohio. He completed his residency at the University Hospital Richmond Medical Center and trained at the Cleveland Clinic. He is certified by the American Board of Podiatric Medicine and qualified by the American Board of Foot and Ankle Surgery.
In addition to evaluating foot and ankle injuries and determining the type of treatment required, Dr. Klumb also specializes in wound care and diabetic limb salvage. Conditions such as bunions, hammer toes, ingrown toenails, and ulcers are also common conditions he evaluates and treats. He knew orthopedics was the route he wanted to pursue after witnessing a loved one suffer from the physical effects of diabetes. He holds vast knowledge in the areas of diabetes and peripheral vascular disease, and works with expeditious pursuit to help patients return to their quality of living.
Born and raised in Chicago, Illinois, Dr. Klumb enjoys sports and loves to cheer on his favorite teams — the Cubs and the Bears. Since 2003, he has been married to his wife, Patcharabhorn (Dr. Pat), who is also a foot and ankle surgeon. They have created memories together exploring the depths of Thailand, and volunteering in Southeast Asia. They enjoy traveling at every opportunity they get, and have made a tradition of vacationing in Iceland every summer. They document their travels through photography, capturing the essence of the inspiring beauty they experience. Dr. Klumb and his wife spend time volunteering in Wichita Falls working with Miss Fannie’s Friends, a feline adoption agency. When he’s not at work, he enjoys the downtown scenery where he stops at Half Pint to enjoy pizza.
Dr. Klumb says the best part of his job is helping people on a daily basis. “A patient can walk into my office with a tremendous amount of foot pain and walk out the same day feeling a hundred percent better,” he says. “That’s very satisfying in my line of work.”
The importance of healthy feet and ankles cannot be overstated, according to Dr. Klumb. Many times people don’t realize how important their feet are until something bad happens. Whether it’s plantar fasciitis, a heel spur, or something more serious, Dr. Klumb has the experience and expertise to help patients onto the road of healing and recovery.
