Dear Dr. Crowe,

In August of 2012, I began working on my bachelor of arts degree in fashion designs. During this time, I had fallen on some ice. Not knowing how injured I was, I jumped up and went back to class. The pain in my leg began, but I was determined to get my degree; graduated in 2016. Before meeting Dr. Crowe, I had suffered with the most intense pain in my right leg for seven years. Due to this pain, it has prevented me from utilizing my degree; not being able to participate in Fashion week. Being a fashion designer is something I have dreamed of becoming since I was a little girl and now that I have had my surgery, I can finally live my childhood dream.

Thank you Dr. Crowe and Dr. Brianna Randall for giving me my life back.

I went to Twin Cities Orthopedics for a second opinion and found Dr. Crowe. He had fixed a compound fracture of my ankle in 2000, and did a wonderful job. I was so happy to find him again and he did a wonderful job on my back. I am pain free and so grateful to Dr. Crowe. If you want a great surgeon who knows his stuff…..Call him!! You will not be disappointed.

I had surgery with Dr. Crowe a couple years ago. I meant to leave my story then but forgot. Dr. Crowe fused my L3L4L5 and I was very happy with him and the work he did for me. He has a great team with him and I would recommend Dr. Crowe and his team to anyone who wants the best surgeon helping them. He really cared about me and my situation. Thank you Dr. Crowe!

I have been bounced between a few different doctors trying to figure out what was causing me the most pain, my back or my hip. The hip won… Dr. Crowe and his staff have done an outstanding job with my hip replacement. I am now pain free and am able to do things I haven’t been able to for over a year. My recovery was better than expected and is a testimony to his skill as a surgeon. His staff is great and I highly recommend him.

I’ve had some debilitating back and right hip issues and finally found Dr. Crowe. He actually listened and spent time trying to figure out what was going on. After an X-ray, it was determined I have some degenerative spine issues. He suggested trying an epidural spine shot and after a month it started feeling better. Now, I have started exercising again. It may come back but now I feel I’ve found a doctor who will listen and be there for me when it flares back up again. My next step is to strengthen my core and get back in shape to lessen any future issues. Thanks Dr. Crowe.

I have spent over 30 years struggling with back pain, and the past couple years have been the absolute worst as I had developed sciatica.

Dr. Crowe has given me my life back. In a matter of a couple weeks, the lumbar decompression he performed has permitted me do the things that I enjoy once again. My scarring is minimal too! I cannot wait until the weather breaks so my pups and I can go walking again. Thank you so much Dr. Crowe!

I liked Dr. Crowe the first time I met him in February 2015 (recommended by Dr. Robin Crandall). He was extremely knowledgeable but also had a sense of humor. I was experiencing severe pain in my left backside again. I had been diagnosed with Spondylolisthesis Stenosis in 2013. After reviewing MRI results and Physical Therapy, my decompression and lumbar fusion surgery was scheduled for April 1st (no joke).

I’m so thankful for a very successful outcome! One concern I had was being able to go on my annual fishing trip. Dr. Crowe said if my recovery went well, I could definitely go. It was a miracle to me that 3 weeks post-surgery, I was totally off all pain meds (an answer to prayer).

I had to write about how skillful Dr. Crowe is. In fact, everyone at TCO was wonderful from supportive, quick-to-respond Jenny to PA Kara in the hospital, who answered all questions and explained in detail.

Dr. Crowe’s associate, Dr. Kraft, had replaced both of my knee joints and both surgeries were very successful. I asked Dr. Kraft who he would want to operate on him, and he said Dr. Crowe. Dr. Crowe did a wonderful job on me. I had very little pain with the Lumbar Decompression and Fusion and my left Foot Drop was corrected.

I would without hesitation recommend Dr. Crowe to anyone needing his special skills.

I felt completely confident with everyone involved in my procedure and that includes the intake people. I feel that Dr. Crowe and his staff did everything they could to get this old man up and walking with very little discomfort. I am very happy with the outcome!
