Chad Crawley, D.O., has practiced orthopedics in Oklahoma since 2007. He was board certified in 2012 and completed fellowship training in 2015.
Prior to joining Utica Park Clinic, Dr. Crawley cared for patients in McAlester, OK and at Central States Orthopedics in Tulsa. He welcomes the opportunity to help you with any general orthopedic concerns and he is particularly skilled in the areas of:
     - Total hip replacement (via a unique, direct anterior approach)
     - Total and partial knee replacement
     - Revisions of total hip and knee replacement
     - Treatment of infected joint replacements of the hip and knee, and
     - Robotic-assisted joint replacement
One of Dr. Crawley's area of expertise is total hip replacement. His direct anterior (front) approach to hip replacement has many benefits over the more traditional – lateral (side) or posterior (back) – approaches. This cutting-edge technique has attracted patients from across Oklahoma and the multi-state region who take advantage of the benefits, including:

     - Less discomfort and pain
     - Shorter recovery time
     - Lower risk of limb length differences
     - Lower dislocation risk
“Following their hip surgery,” Dr. Crawley says, “most patients are walking with assistance only a few hours after the procedure. Generally, patients can return home a day after their surgery or even the same day.” Dr. Crawley was fellowship trained in the direct anterior approach hip replacement technique. He has performed or assisted on over 1,000 procedures of this type.  He has also served as a preceptor in teaching other surgeons on the details and technical aspects of the direct anterior hip replacement. He uses it on almost all of his primary total hip replacements. When it comes to your health and well being, experience matters. For more information, read the blog.
Dr. Crawley earned his Bachelor of Science degree in physiology from Oklahoma State University in Stillwater in 1997. He received his medical degree from the Oklahoma State University (OSU) College of Osteopathic Medicine in Tulsa in 2002. He completed his internship and orthopedic surgery residency with Pinnacle Health System at Community General Osteopathic Hospital in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania in 2003 and 2007, respectively. He completed his orthopedic fellowship training at Bone & Joint Hospital/ McBride Orthopedic Hospital in Oklahoma City in 2015.  
He is a member of the American Association of Hip & Knee Surgeons, the American Osteopathic Association of Orthopedic Surgeons, the American Osteopathic Association, and the Tulsa County Medical Society.
Dr. Crawley’s personal interests include ranching, collecting American muscle cars and attending OSU sporting events. He served in the Oklahoma Army National Guard from 1998 until 2004 and in the Pennsylvania Air National Guard from 2004 until 2006.

Dr Crawley did a total knee replacement on my right knee. My knee healed well and I can walk now without falling all the time. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Crawley and Clint Cator are the most amazing Dr.s ever Dr. Crawley done a total knee replacement on my left knee oct 3rd 2022 and my right knee on Feb 15th this ur and I can already tell the difference it's making in my life. I recommend Dr. Crawley to anyone needing a knee replacement

I suffered from a damaged right hip due to a sports injury dislocation when I was 12 years old. I periodically had sever pain for many years. I was told at age 60 that I had osteo arthritis and would need my hip replaced soon. At age 68 the pain had gotten to the point that some days I couldn't walk at all. At age 70, Doctor Crawley replaced my right hip on 11/28/22. It has now been 2 months and I am walking pain free for the first time in over 50 years. My surgery and my Hillcrest hospital stay were outstanding. I am so happy. It has changed my life. Best experience ever. I highly recommend him. Thank you Dr Crawley and your wonderful support staff.

Had both knees done one year apart. At 80+ I am back up to walking 3 miles per day. The most important thing, do the therapy and listen to Dr. Chad and Clint, they really know what they are doing.

I will say I love doctor crawley he has help me when I was in my wreck in 10-10-10 he made the professional decision to send me to okc to the ou medical center due to the fact that he didn't have the medical equipment to remove my mental plate in my hip if he had the equipment he would have done it in mcalester at the mcalester regional health center and I wouldn't have to go to Oklahoma city the only complaint I have is when I sleep on my right side my hip on my left hip goes numb I can't figure out why my left hip goes numb when I lay on my right side

Excellent doctor. It's a great experience going to Dr Crawley's office. He sits down and talks to you about your problem, options and he doesn't act rushed. He is very respectful. He knows what he is doing. He did arthroscopic surgery on my knee 22 months ago and said it might get me by a couple of years before needing a knee replacement. I'm having the knee replacement in 3 weeks. He guessed it pretty close. I highly recommend him.
