Dr. Anderson was the best. I have had several orthopedic injuries and this was by far, from my first appointment to last, the best experience I've ever had.

Understanding how the elbow works

For all that goes on in our elbow, it could almost use its own skeletal traffic cop. It’s a place where three long bones meet in the middle portion of our arm, making it one of the more complex structures in the body. Among its other duties, our elbows allow us to extend and flex our forearms and rotate our hands.
