Dr. Bradley CrowOrthopedic Surgeon
Walnut Creek (Sequoia Building)
Dr. Crow is board certified in orthopedic surgery and treats lower extremity problems, pain and arthritis, as well as performing joint replacements. He also has a special interest in minimally invasive hip surgery including anterior approach hip arthroplasty.
Approach to Treatment
Having competed in multiple marathons, triathlons and cycling events, I understand my patients’ desire to maintain their current level of activity or aspiration to become more fit. I want to help my patients stay healthy and remain active. I offer the latest advancements in hip and knee replacement surgery, along with specialized pain protocols and minimally invasive surgery to quicken recovery.
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.
