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.
