Dr. Kraay is a wonderful, caring physician. I trust him and appreciate his expertise in planning for my second hip replacement. *** I feel very fortunate to have him as my surgeon.

Dr. Kraay did my right hip replacement 19 years ago and it's still in good shape. He discovered that my left hip is very arthritic which was causing me pain and discs in my lower back had no space and were bone on bone. He recommended hip injection which I followed up with the doctor he recommended for end of July. Dr. Kraay is an outstanding physician and surgeon which I can testify that my right hip replacement is still going strong after 19 years.

Dr. Kraay is simply the best! I was thrilled when I called at 10:15 a.m. and was told he had an opening at 12:30 SAME DAY....and he happened to be at Suburban location, *** from my home. Since he performed my TKA in 2011, he knows this troublesome knee (literally) inside/out!! What a relief that he reviewed X-ray and examined it to determine that while annoying, frequent swelling of replaced knee is not worrisome medically. What a gift it is to have such wonderful continuity of care...and care from such a superlative physician!!

Industry Relationships

University Hospitals is committed to transparency in our interactions with industry partners, such as pharmaceutical, biotech, or medical device companies. At UH, we disclose practitioner and their family members’ ownership and intellectual property rights that are or in the process of being commercialized. In addition, we disclose payments to employed practitioners of $5,000 or more from companies with which the practitioners interact as part of their professional activities. These practitioner-industry relationships assist in developing new drugs, devices and therapies and in providing medical education aimed at improving quality of care and enhancing clinical outcomes. At the same time, UH understands that these relationships may create a conflict of interest. In providing this information, UH desires to assist patients in talking with their practitioners about industry relationships and how those relationships may impact their medical care.

UH practitioners seek advance approval for certain new industry relationships. In addition, practitioners report their industry relationships and activities, as well as those of their immediate family members, to the UH Office of Outside Interests annually. We review these reports and implement management plans, as appropriate, to address conflicts of interest that may arise in connection with medical research, clinical care and purchasing decisions.
