Published Research


  • Dr. Crowe- I recently needed surgery for a complicated right hand injury. Since I am right handed it was especially important that I get the most skilled surgeon I could find. When doing my research, I found many people with great reputations but who don’t actually perform the surgeries themselves; instead they supervise other less experienced doctors on their team. With Dr. Crowe however- you get Dr. Crowe- an extremely knowledgeable, patient, and attentive, surgeon with a great bedside manner. His confidence and experience gave me much needed peace of mind throughout. The surgery worked out great! My hand works perfectly and looks the same as before. I would highly recommend Dr. Crowe to anyone.
