Learn about this Doctor

Care Philosophy

Dr. Jander believes in a team approach to patient care. This team includes the physician, his staff, and, most importantly, the patient. A collaborative team approach, Dr. Jander feels, is the best way to achieve the patient's goals. Factors to consider include restoring function, pain relief, improving quality of life, and returning to sports activities. Most orthopaedic injuries when correctly diagnosed can be treated without surgical intervention. When certain conditions necessitate surgery, Dr. Jander has both the experience and specialty training that translate into excellent patient outcomes. Realizing that surgery can be a worrisome experience, Dr. Jander takes the time to answer all of his patients' questions. Thoroughly explaining the process, the expectations, and the time for recovery is the best way, Dr. Jander believes, to make his patients feel comfortable.Read more

Waited 2.5 hours for 11am appt. Front office staff was not particularly friendly. Waiting room was crowded. Dr. Jander was great but he and his office should know not to schedule patients 10 minutes apart given all the reviews about waiting time
in Woodbridge, VA |
Saw him over several year for different injuries. Always professional and always got me fixed up fine.
