He graduated summa cum laude and phi beta kappa with a degree in Biochemistry from the Honors College at the University of Oregon. While there, he earned a full academic scholarship. After college, he went on to earn his medical degree from the University of Washington, in Seattle.

There, he authored several scientific articles and participated in the creation of a multi-disciplinary care pathway for patients with osteoporotic fractures and hand injuries. In addition, he received the Alma Hass Milham Award for ethical and humane patient care, the OREF Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery grant for fostering critical analysis of orthopaedic literature, a National Institute for Health grant to support his master’s degree training, and was a nominee for the Dartmouth resident teaching award.
Before moving to Durango, Dr. Anderson completed specialized training in hand, upper extremity and microvascular surgery at the University of Washington and Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. Harborview is the only Level 1 Trauma referral center for a five state region. While there, he performed over 800 upper extremity and microvascular procedures.
