Dr. Crane is an excellent diagnostician and was able to diagnose my problem after many other professionals were unable to do so. He did not push surgery on me but told me to contact him when I felt ready. I was impressed with his professionalism and skill.

Had right knee revision surgery in apr 2018, first diagnosiswith a different orthopaedic surgeon the recommendation was a total new knee revision procedure involving months and months of therapy and possibly a year plus healing. Dr Cranes diagnosis was a very partial knee revision surgery requiring NO bone cutting. About 6 weeks therapy and now the knee is doing great. Dr Crane had the diagnosis perfect. His follow up care is both thorough and he listened to all of my concerns.

Dr. Crane is a truly wonderful physician. He cares for the whole person not just the problem or injury. He performed a total hip replacement on me in August 2017. His expertise was obvious but his overall care is one of kindness and compassion. My hip is doing great. I can't recommend Dr. Crane highly enough!

I had the privilege of not only working with Dr. Crane as a nurse in the operating room when he was in Denver, but he also did total knee replacements on both of my husband's knees. I cannot say enough about his clinical skill and expertise, but also the care and compassion he gives to each of his patients. I don't know that you can get a better recommendation than that of an operating room nurse. We have worked with surgeons of every specialty and have seen it all. He is simply the best.

Dr. Crane is an expert in hip and knee replacement and diagnosed my condition within minutes and with a degree of explanation and assurance that I felt quite comfortable with his advisement, which was corroborated by second and third opinions of other medical experts in the field of internal medicine and joint replacement. Further, Dr. Crane spent considerable time with my wife and I to discuss the decision to do surgery and to ways the pros, cons and risks.
