Women's Care is pleased to announce that Dr Crawford, senior
partner at WWC, was nominated for the second year in a row as
one of the "TOP DOCTORS IN DENVER" by 5280 magazine for her
expertise in the OB/GYN category!. The magazine, 5280, has
surveyed doctors and asked them, specialty by specialty, which
metro-area physicians they would trust to treat themselves and
their families. In addition to providing compassionate OB/GYN
care Dr Crawford is certified in the latest Da Vinci robotic
surgery techniques utilizing minimally-invasive surgery
technologies. Dr Crawford recently attended a masters training
course in Da Vinci techniques. To be eligible to attend this
course a surgeon must have completed a certain number of Da
Vinci surgeries. Dr Crawford has been pleased with the clinical
results of the Da Vinci techniques and her patients are thrilled
with the benefits of using the robotic
techniques! Robot-assisted surgery with the
da Vinci® Surgical System is a very
effective, treatment performed though tiny, 1-2 cm incisions.
Surgeons using the
da Vinci System* can
operate with greater precision and control, minimizing the pain
and risk associated with large incisions while increasing the
likelihood of a fast recovery and excellent clinical outcomes.
You can schedule a consultation with Dr. Crawford by calling
either of our office locations.
