Professor Crawford undertakes private clinical practice at St.Vincent’s Private Hospital Northside and public practice at the Prince Charles Hospital. He is also currently employed as the Professor of Orthopaedic research at Queensland University of Technology.
As a surgeon who deals only with pathology of the hip and knees much of his practice is dedicated to primary hip and knee replacement with a special interest in complex problems of the hip and knee. These include revision hip and knee surgery, unicompartmental knee replacement, complex hip reconstruction, including congenital hip dysplasia and robotic hip and knee replacement. Robotic surgery is currently an important part of his surgical practice.
PROFESSOR CRAWFORD IS AN INTERNATIONALLY RECOGNIZED EXPERT IN THE FIELD OF HIP AND KNEE REPLACEMENT SURGERY. HE PERFORMS APPROXIMATELY 150 HIP AND 150 KNEE REPLACEMENTS PER YEAR, ACROSS BOTH PUBLIC AND PRIVATE PRACTICE.
Each year a qualified orthopaedic surgeon is trained by Professor Crawford in complex lower limb joint replacement surgery, including robotic surgery. Surgeons from Canada, India, Malaysia and Singapore represent just some of the countries who have had surgeons selected to be part of this program.
Professor Crawford has been an invited lecturer on hip and knee replacement techniques and outcomes at the Malaysian, Thailand, Australian, Japanese and Indian Orthopaedic Association meetings.
He teaches robotic surgery both nationally and internationally.
Fellowship training, in primary and revision hip and knee replacement surgery, was undertaken by Professor Crawford at both Oxford and Exeter in England and lasted 4 years. He completed a D.Phil (Oxon.) (PhD equivalent) at Oxford University in 2000.
Upon returning to Australia he was appointed as the Chair of Orthopaedic Research at the Queensland University of Technology in 2001. He still continues this role in which he supervises PhD students, a number of post-doctoral researchers and collaborates closely with experts in the field of tissue engineering, cartilage degradation, cartilage mechanics and clinical orthopaedics.
The research in the outcomes of surgery performed under Professor Crawford’s care is an important part of his practice. For more information on Professor Ross Crawfords research publications please click here: Ross Crawford Google Scholar
