Home - Mr John Crawford

I am a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at Addenbrooke’s Hospital, Cambridge.
I specialise in Spinal Surgery and I also manage general orthopaedic trauma.
My current elective practice is wholly that of spinal surgery and I also manage general orthopaedic trauma.

My undergraduate training was at The Royal London Hospital and my general orthopaedic training was in London and Cambridge.
Prior to taking up my appointment as a Consultant, I spent a Spinal Fellowship year at the Spinal Unit in Brisbane, Australia training in both paediatric spinal surgery (scoliosis) and adult spinal surgery.

I am interested in all aspects of spinal surgery including back pain, neck pain, scoliosis and spinal deformity in children and adults, degenerative disease of the lumbar spine and cervical spine, and spinal trauma.

Personal profile

I am married with three children (all boys) and live in Cambridge.
I enjoy many sports and in particular rugby and skiing.
I also enjoy spending time with my family and holidays in Cornwall.

Research Interests

Spinal deformity including minimally invasive surgery and spinal trauma.
