Dr. David Anderson is simply the “BEST “. With his expertise in surgery and his guidance throughout the whole procedure, I have been given a new lease on life. I limped and struggled for many years with extreme pain located in my right knee. Dr. Anderson performed such accuracy that I have the strength and confidence to do enjoy life – PAIN FREE. Thank you Dr. Anderson for having the super ability to not only change my life but also you are a GREAT communicator.  THANKS AGAIN!

Bill F.

“I have had a most positive experience with Twin Cities Orthopedics. From walking into the very warm looking facility to the very professional staff people, I feel I am in great hands,” said Bill F., a patient of David Anderson, MD. Dr. Anderson “takes the time to both listen and articulate in a way that shows he really cares,” he said.The atmosphere at TCO Edina is very relaxed and professional, providing “the best environment for healing,” he said. As a 29 year survivor of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma, Bill explains that he has seen many doctors but has “never received such professional care” as what he has experienced at Twin Cities Orthopedics.
