Special Interests

Dr. Anderson and his family love living in northern Michigan, appreciating the phenomenal opportunities to engage in outdoor activities and with the surrounding community.

“I am always impressed by the resiliency of my patients. People here just want to get better and get on with their lives. I am a total joint specialist, so my entire practice is focused on relieving pain from hip and knee degenerative conditions as well as taking care of patients who failed a first time joint replacement and need revision surgery. Taking care of these needs for this community is incredibly rewarding. I aim to take care of my patients the same way I would want my family cared for.

I am proud to be at Bay Street Orthopaedics & Spine. My partners and I pride ourselves on providing the best, highest quality, and most up-to-date subspecialty orthopaedic care in northern Michigan. We live in a very active community, and we at Bay Street want to keep our patients as pain-free and mobile as possible. At Bay Street, we put our patients first and foremost. We have been a part of the community for 50 years, and we look forward to carrying this forward into the future.”
