About Me

Defining a Hand Surgeon: Robert Anderson, M.D.

Dr. Robert Anderson’s Approach to Care

“My own injuries and need for surgeries have helped me understand the patient experience. I’m a better listener and care provider as a result. I grew up and attended college in the area, so I know and understand the people of the Twin Cities.”
