About John J. McCrosson, M.D. of Charleston, SC

Dr. McCrosson has devoted his life to being a master hip and knee replacement surgeon in Charleston, SC. After completing his fellowship in New York City, he returned to his native South Carolina to begin practice as a hip and knee replacement specialist in 2000. Many surgeons occasionally replace hips and knees in addition to operating on arms and feet. Dr. McCrosson concentrates exclusively on replacing hips and knees so that he and his team can give patients the most confidence and the best possible results whether the procedure is a straight-forward first-time knee replacement or the most complex revision. He is humbled by knowing that if you ask around the Charleston area for recommendations from people of all walks of life including nurses, physical therapists, doctors, and others, you will hear his name and positive reviews frequently.  Hip and knee replacement surgery usually has the potential to last the rest of your life if performed well, so experience matters. The surgeon’s experience more than anything else is related to the most comforting, safe, and lasting experience for you. Dr. McCrosson is highly rated nationally for his experience performing these surgeries.
