“The opportunity to provide patient care is an honor and a privilege. This responsibility drives me to excel and provide the best possible care for my hand and upper extremity patients. As part of the UCHealth team, I am surrounded by world class primary care and subspecialty providers who allow me to provide optimum care to each of my patients.
I became a physician because I enjoy taking care of people and I enjoy the doctor/patient interaction. I became an orthopedic surgeon because of the direct impact I can have on people’s lives by treating and improving their musculoskeletal ailments. I became a hand surgeon because I find hand anatomy to be the most delicate and complex in the musculoskeletal system. Our hands allow us to do so much and when they aren’t working properly after injury or disease, it affects life dramatically. I truly enjoy helping my patients get back to their lives, careers and hobbies by treating their hand injuries.”
Dr. Augusta Kluk received her Bachelor’s degree in Neuroscience from John Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD. She received her medical degree from University of Maryland School of Medicine, also in Baltimore. She completed her fellowship at Brown University in Orthopedic and Hand Surgery in Providence, RI.
Hobbies: I enjoy being outdoors in beautiful Colorado, hiking, skiing or playing golf. I love spending time with my family and I am an avid Broncos fan.
