Care Philosophy

I believe as physicians we must always remember what it feels like to be a patient. I had several knee surgeries in high school as an athlete,  specifically lacrosse and field hockey and the experience has helped me develop into the doctor that I try to be.  I try to be compassionate and caring, even though I am very focused on the issues that brings the patient into the office. I believe in educating patients about their problem so the decision for surgery is collaborative, and the patient ultimately has the final decision. I believe that surgery can be a very vunerable process, and education and support by my entire wonderful staff is paramount to an excellent outcome. I am very fortunate to have excellent staff from the person who answers the phone, to my medical assistant, to our surgery scheduler, who helps walk a patient through the complex process of scheduling, having and healing after surgery.  I have  specialized in treating only knee and shoulder problems since I finished my fellowship in 1984, and continually try to stay on the leading edge of treating cartilage problems, arthritis in the young patient, and ways to avoid arthritis in the first place. I am very fortunate to work at a craft that continually stimulates my curiosity and provides me the opportunity to help patients return to health and wellness.

I am very pleased with the outcome of my surgery. Dr. Anderson has gentle caring hands, I didn't really require any pain medication after my procedures. Without pain I was able to recover and heal faster- it allowed me to start my icing and PT exercises the following day. Overall my experience was excellent. I would highly recommend Dr. Anderson.
