Chad Crawley, D.O., has practiced orthopedics in Oklahoma since 2007. He was board certified in 2012 and completed fellowship training in 2015. Patient comments about him include:
"I was anxious about getting an injection but Dr. Crawley and his staff put me at ease and made me feel like family. Dr. Crawley and Clint were exceptionally kind and helpful. The service was excellent. I was very happy when I left. Utica Park Clinic should be proud of its employees. They are awesome!"
"The staff and Dr. Crawley were sincerely concerned that this operation have a positive outcome. I knew I could trust his experience. Should it be necessary that I need any other joint replacement in the future, he would be my choice again. I felt I was very prepared for this surgery by the doctor and the materials provided by his staff. All of my questions and concerns were addressed."
"Dr. Crawley was knowledgeable, listened to my questions and concerns, and made sure he answered all my questions. He made me feel like he cared about giving me the best experience. I have the utmost confidence in his abilities to fix my health issues."
"I should have had my hip replaced five years ago. He is the BEST and I trust him!"
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
