Joanna Kluender, NP-C

Joanna Kluender, NP-C, is an advanced practice provider with a decade of orthopedic experience. She is a nurse practitioner with multiple levels of advanced training and education, including a Master of Science degree. Joanna partners closely with Dr. Grillot and independently diagnoses, treats, and provides care and health education to patients.

Joanna’s primary objective with patient care is to promote improvement throughout the continuum of the patient care experience. “My goal is to get patients back to as much independence as possible and provide treatments that create the best outcomes,” says Joanna. “I love connecting with patients on a personal level so we can create a plan of care that aligns with their goals and needs. My approach also considers how disease affects their spiritual, physical, and emotional wellbeing.”

When Joanna isn’t in the clinic or classroom, she stays busy as a wife and mother of two teens and a German shorthair pointer. She enjoys an active lifestyle, hiking and snowshoeing with her dog, traveling to new countries and experiencing new cultures and cuisines.
