Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Crofford "As an Orthopedic surgeon who specializes in the treatment of hip and knee disorders, my goal is to help the patient achieve and then maintain an active life style that promotes physical fitness, physical health, recreational activities, amd return to the workforce.
