Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Anderson "As an orthopaedic foot and ankle surgeon, my goal is to restore your ability to walk and participate in the activities you enjoy without foot and ankle pain. This may involve therapy, orthotics, injections and possibly surgery. I will take the time to listen to your concerns and explain our approach. I enjoy educating patients about their foot and ankle problems and involving them in their own care."
