I was referred to Dr. Crosby with a very severe back problem. After all of the scans necessary to get a full picture of my problem I met with the Dr. and we had a discussion of what he had found. It was worse than I had expected and a very complicated case. I explained to the doctor that I had always considered myself to be a strong person and that despite my age I wanted to be able to maintain an activity level to allow me to be able to interact with my grandchildren for years to come. One of my main concerns was that because of my age the doctor would not want to provide the level of care I desired but Dr. Cosby listen to me and planned a surgery that would give me the best chance to improve my level of activity as much as possible. Being retired from the medical field I can appreciate the level of sophistication the surgery required. I have since had the surgery. As can be expected there were a few difficult days in the hospital following the surgery, however I am extremely pleased

Found Dr Crosby to be highly professional and knowledgeable. Found him to be a listening Dr who takes the time to find out what is going on from the patients perspective. He is very thorough and took the time to explain what was needed.

Dr. Colin Crosby did my back surgery, and my family and I could not be any happier. There was NO pain in my hip, leg and foot immediately after surgery. The whole experience was pretty incredible. I told Dr. Crosby before surgery that I was so thankful for him and had been praying a lot about the surgery and success! He asked if he could pray with us! To have your surgeon pray before your operation is the most humbling experience you will ever have. For us, that moment is frozen in time. Spinal surgery is intimidating even when you have faith. Dr. Crosby and his staff are incredible people who take the time to let you know that you're not just another patient. I cannot believe I can go through the day without pain; it's crazy wonderful!! I would recommend Dr. Colin Crosby and his staff to anyone who is contemplating spinal surgery.

Dr Crosby has a top notch staff working for him. He himself has proven his exemplary professionalism and caring side. He respected and listened tentatively about my chief complaint. He, his highly educated and knowledgeable staff were able to carefully assess my situation and present clear and efficient plan of care, involving me in every decision. Dr Crosby and his staff have my recommendations.

Dr. Crosby listened to me at every visit. He worked with me to try everything possible to avoid surgery, such as physical therapy, steroid shots, etc. After a year and a half, my symptoms did not improve and I chose to have a micro discectomy. There was no pressure at all from Dr. Crosby. He allowed me the time and informed me of all the choices I had every step of the way. Highly recommend he and his staff.

Dr. Crosby and his staff are awesome! He takes his time and really cares about his patients. We always go to Elite Sports Medicine even though it is two hours from where we live. I was in a car accident and have had terrible back pain and Dr Crosby took great care of me as well as providing support for our concerns. I highly recommended Dr. Crosby and Elite for anyone needing an orthopedic doctor.

Dr. Colin Crosby is a GENIUS. He was my second opinion option after my first choice was going to release me to return to work and my back was still broken as well as broken ribs that the other so called surgeon completely missed. PLEASE, please, please do NOT go to T.O.A. (Tennessee Orthopaedic Associates. It was a horrific experience. R. Felts

As a retired physician, I know what it takes to be worth 5 stars and Dr.? Crosby would get 10 stars. He is personable, knowledgeable, truly interested in his patients and kind - to everyone. His staff is just like him. As a technician, Dr. Crosby is superb. My back is better after his surgery than it was before my accident. Remarkable. He is one of the top physicians I have known in my life.

I was very fearful and in terrible pain. A friend referred me to Dr. Crosby. I can not say enough about the incredible care I received from Dr. Crosby and his team. His team provided amazing care and compassion during a very stressful time. Dr. Crosby and team preformed a laminectomy/discectomy for a ruptured disk. I am 6 months post-op and feel great. I would recommend to anyone!!!!!!!!!

On June 27th and June 28th, Dr Crosby and his excellent team repaired my L3-L4 and L4- L5 on the 27th and then on the 28th through my back securing my vertebrae with posts and screws. When I woke up, I was pain free! When I took my first walk, I could not believe that after years of pain I was normal. God gifted Dr. Crosby with an excellent patient care attitude and a brilliant surgeon's skill. Amy Freeman, P.A. was caring and thorough, too. I thank God for leading me to Dr. Crosby.

On July 11 and 12, 2017, Dr. Crosby and team performed back surgery to alleviate a condition called spondylolisthesis where L4 had slid forward of L5. The L4/L5 disc was replaced on the 11th and the screws/rods/fusion was performed on the 12th. The entire experience at TriStar Centennial was the height of professionalism and personal care. Dr. Crosby was able to relieve the debilitating pain with the procedure. He is a stellar surgeon and genuinely good man.
