From simple sprains to orthopaedic trauma, from reconstructive surgery to total joint replacement, patients with orthopaedic concerns now have access to comprehensive, highly specialized care right here at home.

Pleasant Valley Hospital (PVH) is pleased to announce the arrival of John Crompton, MD, to the medical team at Pleasant Valley Hospital Orthopaedics. Dr. Crompton, a board-certified and fellowship-trained orthopaedic surgeon with advanced training in total hip and knee replacement as well as general orthopaedic surgery, will begin providing orthopaedic care on July 6, 2015. A member of the award-winning team of physicians and surgeons at Marshall Orthopaedics, Dr. Crompton’s experience and expertise are unparalleled in the region.

“One of the great things about our partnership with Cabell Huntington Hospital and the Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine is that it provides new and expanded health care avenues onsite at PVH,” said Pleasant Valley Hospital CEO Glen Washington. “We are increasing the depth of our existing services, developing new services to care for our patients more fully and making highly specialized medicine available right here in Point Pleasant.”

Dr. Crompton earned his medical doctorate from the University of North Carolina School of Medicine in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, and completed his residency in general and orthopaedic surgery at the Bowman Gray School of Medicine in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. He received fellowship training in advanced surgeries for the hand at the University of Miami School of Medicine, Department of Orthopaedics. Dr. Crompton’s affiliation with Marshall Orthopaedics, the region’s only academic orthopaedic team, provides patients at Pleasant Valley Hospital with access to a wide range of orthopaedic subspecialties.

“The Marshall School of Medicine has made it a priority to stay at the forefront of the field of orthopaedics, which has grown exponentially in recent years,” Dr. Crompton said. “Marshall Orthopaedics has expanded its specialties to include services like pediatric orthopaedics, orthopaedic traumatology and orthopaedic oncology – services that weren’t available anywhere in the state of West Virginia just 10 years ago. Now, with the partnership between Pleasant Valley Hospital and the Marshall School of Medicine, we are able to provide immediate access to those services to residents of Point Pleasant and surrounding areas. It’s an exciting time in the field of orthopaedics, and it’s an exciting time at Pleasant Valley Hospital.”

At Pleasant Valley Hospital, Dr. Crompton cares for patients with sports-related injuries, cartilage and bone injuries, torn ligaments and tendons, carpal tunnel syndrome, rheumatoid and osteoarthritis of the hand, Dupuytren’s disease and trigger finger. He performs arthroscopic knee and shoulder surgery, reconstructive foot and ankle surgery, clubfoot correction for infants, total and partial joint replacement and diabetic limb preservation surgery. He also provides orthopaedic trauma care and comprehensive care of the fingers, hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder.
