      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Anderson's Care Philosophy

      Though Gregg Anderson has been a surgeon for over two decades, his goal has always remained the same: to be the kind of doctor that patients would feel confident referring their family members to, as that is the highest praise a surgeon can earn. One of Dr. Anderson's most treasured memories from surgery was meeting a man who was diagnosed unexpectedly with a malignant cardiac tumor. After Dr. Anderson performed a bi-atrial reconstruction (essentially rebuilding half the heart), the man was able to enjoy a number of years of life that he hadn't expected to have. Dr. Anderson says that one of the things that is satisfying about being a surgeon is getting to see his patients in follow-up and see how they've improved. Dr. Anderson's favorite procedure to perform is an aortic valve reconstruction, because it helps the patient immediately. Dr. Anderson is married to his wife Audrey, and they have four sons.
