Dr. Croy is a board certified orthopedic physician and surgeon. He treats patients with sports and trauma injuries as well as those with general orthopedic problems.
Dr. Croy's personalized, collaborative care helps each patient focus on the goal of maximum restored function. "Good medicine begins with a good conversation," says Dr. Croy. "It's my experience that patients make good choices when they know their options. It starts by taking time to explain what's going on. Often, surgery is the only solution, but when conservative, non-surgical treatment is an option, it should be a patient's choice."
Dr. Croy's experience teaching level 1 orthopedic trauma care at Oregon Health & Science University established his respect for continuity of patient care and inspired his move into private practice.
Dr. Croy is currently:
- Chair of Surgery at Providence Newberg Medical Center
- A licensed Professional Engineer with a Master's in Mechanical Engineering
- Team physician for George Fox University
- Member of the Providence Orthopedic Institute
Dr. Croy welcomes new patients of all ages at his office west of Portland in scenic Newberg, Oregon.
