Who is Dr. Croy...

Dr. Croy is also a Professional Engineer and has a Masters Degree in Mechanical Engineering.  He understands the forces that cause traumatic injury as well as the science and technology that enables optimal recovery.  Patients appreciate his straight-forward explanations and his use of models and drawings to explain their specific injury and to identify treatment options.

Prior to joining Providence, Dr. Croy directed his own well-established private orthopedic practice known for excellence in care and service in Newberg.  Dr. Croy also served as Assistant Professor in Orthopaedics at Oregon Health & Science University in Portland, where he combined his love of orthopedics with his natural teaching ability to guide student physicians in the emergency care of level 1 orthopedic trauma patients.  

“Good medicine begins with a good conversation.  It’s my experience that patients

make good choices when they know their options.   It starts by taking time to explain

what’s going on.  Often, surgery is the only solution, but when conservative,

non-surgical treatment is an option, it should be a patient’s choice."


Dr. Croy practices at Providence Newberg Specialty Clinic located at Providence Newberg Medical Center.  He sees patients, operates, and takes emergency room trauma call all in one convenient location.  Dr. Croy welcomes new patients.

Dr. Croy is a member of the Providence Orthopedic Institute and an American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons Fellow.  He is board-certified by the American Board of Surgery in both Orthopedic Surgery and Orthopedic Sports Medicine Surgery.
