He enrolled in Medical School at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston and graduated in 1986. After an internship in Tulsa, Oklahoma, he completed a residency in General Surgery in Cleveland, Ohio.

Karbach, Jr., MD and has actively practiced General Surgery since then. He served as Chief of Staff at Christus Santa Rosa Hospital – New Braunfels in 2010.  He and Jean have two children, Robert and Katherine.

Dr. Kneuper’s interest in vein surgery began early in his surgical training, when he first saw the effects of venous insufficiency that some patients endured. He was trained in the older techniques of vein stripping and the conservative management of venous disease utilizing compression stockings and Unna boots.  With the advent of the latest techniques of endovenous ablation, microphlebectomy and sclerotherapy, Dr. Kneuper has a renewed enthusiasm to offer this cutting edge technology to his patients.  Dr. Kneuper is a member of numerous medical, surgical societies and  is also active in his community belonging to several organizations.
