Dr Anderson has done both of my knees now. He did the right one, 4 years ago and my left one, last month. He did a Fantastic job on both and I can do things with both legs that I haven't done in years......like ride a bike or walk up and down stairs, 1 foot over the other!! Super excited for sure! I will absolutely recommend Dr. Anderson for surgery...Oh, and my scar is minimal. Thank you Dr Anderson, for giving me my life back! Everyone there is super friendly and wonderful too :)

Dr. Anderson did my first knee replacement surgery. It did not heal correctly and I had to have it done again, by another orthopedic surgeon. Additionally, I found Dr. Anderson's demeanor to be rather arrogant. I would not recommend him.

I saw Dr Anderson after being misdiagnosed by 2 doctors,even though my MRI presented a clear diagnosis. Dr Anderson took the time to research a rare condition & followed up with me by weeks end with a solution. We proceeded with arthroscopic surgery. Dr Anderson kept me well informed, & did an excellent job with the surgery. I appreciated his professionalism, & willingness to take action with rare condition not seen before. I am elated to now be able to return to an active lifestyle. Thank you!
