"Dr. Crotwell performed a total hip replacement for me. I have had my other hip replaced 15 years prior in a different part of the country. My recovery this time with Dr. Crotwell has been leaps and bounds better than my previous surgery. This is due, in part, to advancements in the way the procedure is performed, but also lends to Dr. Crotwell's work and the work of his staff. Although I wouldn't recommend most of Springhill medical's staff for hospital stay, my dealings with Dr. Crotwell and his staff has been excellent. Having had 2 hip surgeries himself, and having performed these surgeries for decades, Dr. Crotwell is in an excellent position to diagnose, treat, and repair, if necessary, any orthopaedic issues you may have."
