Dr. Anderson III's Care Philosophy

Dr. Anderson considers the opportunity to provide patient care to be an honor and a privilege. He considers the willingness of a patient or family member to place the care of themselves under his care to be the highest complement one can bestow upon a physician. Not all musculoskeletal conditions require surgical intervention, and can be treated effectively with nonsurgical/conservative care. Surgical intervention is only offered when nonsurgical options have been exhausted, or are not reasonable. It is Dr. Anderson's and his team's philosophy to provide care in an efficient, reliable, and trustworthy manner in an effort to improve the patient's well being. He wants to improve the well-being of his patient, not merely to offer an orthopedic surgical intervention.

Patient Comments (1)
in Tomball, TX |
Dr. Anderson did my 1st spine (SI Joint Fusion) surgery just before I retired from the military. After trying all conservative methods, this was the outcome. Continuing to have problems, I'm about to have a L4/L5 laminectomy & discectomy. It's hard to change DR's, because feeling like you have to start over is disheartening. Continuity of care is critical in providing "the best care" for any patient. I wish he was w/in my reach so that I could receive just that. Sir, congratulations & good luck!
