Clifford Crutcher

Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery


I am a neurosurgeon who specializes in spine surgery. I take care of people with conditions affecting the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine, including herniated disc, spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis, and adult degenerative scoliosis. I also provide general neurosurgery care. I really enjoy developing a relationship with my patients and their family. I try to tailor my approach and treatment plans to each patient based on their unique goals and needs. Often, nonsurgical options are available to improve the patient’s symptoms. My goal is to help people return to their previous level of functioning and to help people enjoy life again. Outside of work, I love spending time with my wife and two children. I also enjoy fishing and running on trails.
