According to Dr. Crow, listening is an important part of every medical exam but with the existing and increasing demands on providers, this has become a lost art. He believes that focusing on patients’ concerns is a great way to set them up for success. His ultimate goal is to restore function and provide pain relief to his patients by offering the utmost quality of surgical care.
Dr. Crow spends a great deal of time educating his patients on arthritis prevention and treatment, as well as pre-operative and post-surgical management. Dr. Crow’s primary goal is to manage symptoms conservatively, when possible, by using effective medical or physical therapies. When surgery is indicated, Dr. Crow provides the most advanced surgical options and specialized pain protocols that are designed to restore function and decrease recovery time.
Dr. Crow graduated summa cum laude with degrees in chemistry and biology from Saint Louis University. He went on to complete his medical degree at the Saint Louis University School of Medicine and graduated in 2001.

After residency, Dr. Crow completed a fellowship in Lower Extremity Joint Replacement at Scripps Clinic in La Jolla, CA. He received extensive training in primary and revision knee and hip replacement surgery, as well as joint preservation procedures such as allograft and partial knee resurfacings. This background, along with attending continuing medical education courses, allows him to offer the most up-to-date surgical care for his patients.
Due to his involvement in research, Dr. Crow has presented at regional and national conferences and has published several articles in orthopedic journals. Dr. Crow is an active peer reviewer for the Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery.Continuing his medical education and learning the latest advances and technologies is most important to him.
