William B. Kleinman, MDphysician

William B. Kleinman, M.D., is one of the original founders of The Indiana Hand to Shoulder Center. He has been in the practice of hand and upper extremity surgery at the Center since the completion of his post-residency Fellowship training in 1978. He earned his doctorate degree in medicine from Cornell University/New York Hospital in New York City in 1972. He completed a two-year general surgery residency at the University of Colorado Medical Center in Denver in 1974, followed by a return to New York City to complete his three-year residency training in orthopaedic surgery at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center in 1977. His formal one-year Fellowship training in Hand Surgery was also completed at Columbia-Presbyterian, under the tutelage of his legendary mentor, Dr. Robert E. Carroll. Dr. Kleinman’s training in microvascular reconstruction followed at Duke University Medical Center in North Carolina.

He is a full Clinical Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery at the Indiana University School of Medicine. Much of his work at the I.U. Medical Center throughout his career has been in children with hand and upper extremity birth defects. Services have been provided through the Congenital Hand Deformities Clinic at the Riley Children’s Hospital, where he served as founder and director from 1978 to 1995. His work with birth deformities continues at The Indiana Hand to Shoulder Center, where a good portion of his practice focuses on birth deformities and injuries. He continues to care for children with birth palsies at both Riley Hospital and St. Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis.

Dr. Kleinman has been passionate about teaching throughout his 33-year career. At the time of this writing, he has given 363 formal international, national, and regional lecture presentations on hand and upper extremity reconstruction. He has been an invited speaker to societies and institutions 78 times. He has published 34 scientific articles in peer-review journals. He is written 23 chapters in academic textbooks, and has developed six teaching videotapes for the American Society for Surgery of the Hand. He has been involved and committed to teaching, lecturing, and administrative activities of the American Society for Surgery of the Hand, and the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgery since becoming an active member of both organizations in the early 1980s. In 1985, he received the coveted Sterling Bunnell Traveling Fellowship Award from the ASSH. In addition to being chairman of many committees of the ASSH, he served from 2000-2003 on its Executive Council. He was an associate editor for the American Journal of Hand Surgery for five years, and a consultant for the Journal for an additional ten years.

Most of Dr. Kleinman’s research and teaching in hand surgery has been focused on injuries and diseases of the wrist (including: scaphoid fractures, wrist arthritis, Kienbock’s disease, fractures of the distal radius, and disorders of the triangular fibrocartilage at the distal end of the ulna). He has also focused on cubital tunnel syndrome and carpal tunnel syndrome, as well as birth palsies and congenital deformities.

He is Board-Certified in orthopedic surgery, and continues to hold a current Certificate of Additional Qualifications in surgery of the hand. Dr. Kleinman was elected to the prestigious American Orthopaedic Association in 1995, an organization committed to the highest standards of orthopaedic surgery. He is also a charter member of the International Congenital Hand Studies Group, and is an active member of numerous national and local professional associations. He has also been made an honorary member of the Argentinean Hand Society.

Dr. Kleinman is passionate about giving the highest level of care to his patients. He values above all the doctor-patient relationship, and the quality of services he – and his nine partners at The Indiana Hand to Shoulder Center – deliver to each of our patients.
