LOUISVILLE, Ky. – After decades of collaboration to achieve several firsts in the world, the nation and Kentucky, Kleinert Kutz Hand Care is now part of UofL Health.

This exciting new chapter builds on the long legacy that started with Dr. Harold Kleinert, Dr. Joseph Kutz, Jewish Hospital and UofL Physicians. Together, they put Louisville on the world map for hand surgery, including:

  • Hand transplants
  • Zone II Tendon repair
  • Digital artery repair
  • Toe-to-hand transfer
  • Free epiphyseal transfer
  • Total distal radio-ulnar joint replacement
  • Total wrist resurfacing and replacement

As UofL Health – Kleinert Kutz Hand Care, the expertise and innovation will continue with ongoing commitment to delivering the highest quality hand and upper extremity care to our community and beyond. Patients who have traveled thousands of miles routinely seek out our specialized care, and our team of fellowship-trained general, orthopedic and plastic surgeons continue to consult on cases all over the world and train future hand care experts.

The legacy of Drs. Kleinert and Kutz is now carried on through the expertise of:

Practice and therapy locations will remain the same. These locations include Jewish Hospital Outpatient Care Center, two additional Louisville sites, as well as branches in Lexington and New Albany, Indiana. UofL Health and Kleinert Kutz will also partner on the Ambulatory Surgery Center in New Albany, making minimally invasive surgical care more convenient for our patients. Kleinert Kutz’s eight providers and more than 100 dedicated staff members will continue to be an integral part of our mission to deliver top-quality care.
