Dr. John R. Craw
Dr. John R. Craw received his medical degree from Ohio State University. He completed a year-long general surgery internship in Phoenix, AZ at the Phoenix Integrated Surgical Residency. Following this, he moved to Kansas City for his orthopaedic surgery residency at the University of Missouri Kansas City. He finished his training with a hand surgery fellowship at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, FL. Dr. Craw is a candidate member of the American Society for Surgery of the Hand.
Dr. Craw’s year-long hand surgery training included extensive training in true endoscopic carpal tunnel release surgery, a new, innovative technique that is gaining popularity due to faster recovery times and minimal scarring. Being a forerunner in this procedure, Dr. Craw has written an instructional chapter on the technique in the soon-to-be published, ‘Operative Dictations in Plastic Surgery’. He enjoys treating all aspects of the upper extremity, with a particular interest in the hand, wrist and elbow.
