I met Dr. Crowther the Tuesday before Thanksgiving at the emergency room as the ER doc was having me prepped for surgery for a hip fracture. Dr. Crowther arrived in the nick of time to say that my range of motion indicated I didn't need surgery and sent me home with instructions to stay off my leg and visit his office as soon as the holiday was over. Indeed, I had a non-displaced fracture--the only kind of fracture, he said, that doesn't require surgery. So my first meeting with him was like the sun coming out on a very cloudy day!He is very personable, easy-going, open-minded and efficient. He has been wonderful throughout my recovery and in helping me with some unrelated knee problems.I highly recommend him!
I have had 2 hip replacements completed by Dr. Crowther. Each one went very well. He spent a tremendous amount of time going over the pro's and con's and explained in detail what was going to be done. I hope not to be seeing him anytime soon, but if something comes up I will definitely use him and refer others as well.
