I had a full knee replacement by Dr. Crutcher on my right knee in April 2021 and a full knee replacement on my left knee in April 2022. Dr Crutcher and his staff were really wonderful. The day of surgery and before the surgery they made me feel welcome, cared for and most important of all their efforts put me at ease before the surgery. After surgery in the recovery room the care was top shelf. After the surgeries I did everything the doctor told me to do. And I started PT within 4 days of surgery. I did everything the PT people told me to do and attended PT twice a week. And did the exercises at home they recommended. Since the surgeries I am back to doing all the things I love doing. Walking, taking the dog for long walks again, bicycling, swimming, skiing and spending time at the gym. Walking is fun again. In July I was in SoCal and started walking 2.5 miles in the morning and 2.5 miles in the afternoon. Back in Seattle in August I made some short hikes at Stevens Pass. By September and October I hiked up to Mailbox Peak near North Bend twice. In mid November me and some friends hiked from the south rim at Grand Canyon to the bottom and hiked back out the next day. My whole body was tired and sore but my knees felt great! After that my friends and I got in a car and drove to Las Vegas for 4 hours to catch a plane back home. My knees never bothered me the whole time. On December 4th I was skiing at Stevens Pass and my knees felt great! I am 68 and looking forward to many years of an active lifestyle. Many thanks to Dr Crutcher and his staff. Scott

Between 2014 and 2021 Dr. Crutcher has replace both my knees and both hips. All the surgeries went smoothly and I had very little postoperative pain. I am now 81, have good range of motion in all four joints, and take no pain medication. Dr. Crutcher's wonderful surgical skills and care have made a huge difference in the quality of my life. I would recommend him to anyone.

I unfortunately have had my hip replaced or revised 4 times in the last 30 years. Two were in the first 10 years and then I fired that orthopedist and thankfully found Dr. Crutcher for revisions #3 and 4. As I said to him on my last operation in 4/2021 - "My life would have been significantly different if I hadn't have found him". I recover well from surgery, but it was only with Dr. Crutcher's expertise that I have had such great outcomes on the last two revisions. Revisions are much different than first time replacements. Additionally, i am an advocate for individuals with neurological disabilities and separately I have also seen Dr. Crutcher's empathy and patience when working with individuals for whom understanding the process is quite complicated.

In May I had a very successful total knee replacement and can't say enough about Dr. Crutcher and his staff. I am so thankful to be able to put weight now on that leg I am going in October for my other knee which is in need of repair. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you Dr. Crutcher!

Dr Crutcher and his staff are wonderful. I've now had replacement of both my knees and I can't say enough about how happy I am with the results. Doctor Crutcher was very easy to talk to and available if I needed him. He also has a very qualified staff that is very supportive. I have recommended Doctor Crutcher to many people - he is the best in his field.

64 yr old male I had a total left hip replacement done by Dr. Crutcher and team in 2018 and a partial medial right knee replacement done Nov. 2019, couldn't be happier about the surgery and recovery experiences, both went extremely well. Pain was well-managed both times. Feels great to being pain-free with full range of motion again while returning to the active lifestyle I had before especially hiking, snowshoeing etc.

I am totally satisfied with my knee replacement. Recovery was quite quick. Pain was minimal and I plan on having Dr. Crutcher replace my other knee this year.
