In 1998, Anderson Medical Center opened its Surgery Center, becoming the first and only complete care center in the tri-state (Colorado, Wyoming, and Nebraska) region.

Our state-of-art, Medicare-Certified surgery center offers Podiatry as well as Whole-Body chronic pain procedures that are high in quality and often lower in price than full-service hospitals. We offer complete specialized care from an experienced, dedicated team.

Our podiatry surgery staff performs all Podiatry-related surgeries for conditions ranging from bunions and hammertoes to heel pain and ankle problems.  Our staff includes Dr. James Anderson, DPM, one of the top peripheral nerve surgeons in the country and abroad who provides advanced surgeries for lower extremity neuropathy and restless legs.

These include other neuropathies, joint pain, pain following surgeries, back or neck pain, chronic migraine headaches, and more.

Expert, Specialized Treatments and Affordable, Price-Transparent Care

It is no secret to anyone that the pricing of surgical services is at the top of the list of problems in our dysfunctional healthcare system. The out of pocket cost to patients can be prohibitive. It is clear that something must change. We believe in an approach involving transparent and direct pricing for those whose insurance plans have a high deductible or for those who want a less expensive alternative to typical hospital pricing. This means the patient knows exactly what the cost of the service will be upfront.

The bundled cash pricing outlined on this website is not a teaser, nor is it a bait-and-switch ploy. It is the actual price you will pay. We can offer these prices because we are completely physician-owned and managed.

    • We control every aspect of the facility from the most efficient use of staff, to the elimination of wasteful operating room practices that non-profit hospitals have no incentive to curb.
    • By purchasing a discounted package prior to treatment, patients avoid extra costs involved with paying for individual services.
    • We are truly committed to providing the best quality care at the lowest possible price.

What We Treat

  • Arthritis

    Don’t let arthritis keep you from living life to the fullest. If you’re facing ankle, joint or other foot fusions or joint replacement, there is an alternative with less risk and less recovery time.

    Arthritis (most commonly osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis) can be painful, debilitating, and frustrating. Swollen, stiff joints and “flare-ups” after periods of activity can make daily life difficult.

    The highly trained podiatrists at Anderson Podiatry Center take arthritis—in all its forms—seriously. That’s why we were the first doctors in the Rocky Mountain region to treat painful arthritic joints with nerve removal, bypassing the need for more complicated bone surgery.

    Our podiatrists are the first in the region to offer the groundbreaking new Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy, a painless and fast procedure that can help repair cartilage in the foot and ankle joint with no down time. If you suffer from debilitating arthritis, PRP Therapy might be able to help you avoid or delay surgery—including joint fusion or replacement—and get back to the activities you love sooner.

    Our varied and affordable treatment options can get you back on your feet, helping to relieve pain and inflammation.

    Resection surgery removes small nerve branches around the painful joint to decrease or eliminate the sensation of pain in that joint. It is much less risky than conventional surgery for joint replacement or fusion, and involves much less healing time. Our doctors have had remarkable results using this procedure and patient satisfaction is very high.

    Don’t let your arthritis continue to progress—the podiatrists at Anderson Podiatry Center are ready to help you get back on your feet.

    • Long-lasting relief is our goal
    • We treat the underlying cause of arthritis, not just the symptoms
    • Most insurance plans accepted
    • Medicare-certified, state-of the art-surgery center
  • Big Toe Pain

    Don’t let hallux limitus get worse—learn about your treatment options today.

    Do you feel pain where your big toe meets your foot? Does walking hurt this area?

    Do you notice a grinding or grating of the big-toe joint when you move it? Has a bone spur grown on top of the joint, or does it often swell up? Do you find it difficult to wear flip-flops, or shoes with poor support?

    If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you might be experiencing a progressive arthritic condition known as hallux limitus, which is similar to a bunion.

    Hallux limitus can strike almost anyone, and is often caused by genetics or injury to the big-toe joint. If left untreated, it can progress to hallux rigidus, or no movement of the big-toe joint at all, which can lead to painful walking and daily life.

    The highly trained specialists at Anderson Podiatry Center can use the latest technology to reveal the exact stage of the hallux limitus and determine the most appropriate actions to take. Treatment usually consists of custom orthotics, cortisone injections, Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy, AmnioFix Therapy, and surgery in the more advanced stages of the condition.

    • Long-lasting relief is our goal
    • We treat the underlying cause of hallux limitus, not just the symptoms
    • Most insurance plans accepted
    • Medicare-certified, state-of the art-surgery center

    Don’t wait! Hallux limitus can progress and worsen if left untreated.

  • Bunions & Bunionettes

    Bunion Treatments: Slip into your favorite pair of shoes again.

    Are you experiencing foot pain, swelling, restricted movement of one or many toes, or difficulty fitting into your favorite pair of shoes?

 Take look at your bare foot. You might need bunion treatments.

    Does your big toe point in toward your second toe? Is there a visible bump on your big toe joint? If so, you might have a bunion.

    If your big toe looks fine, is there a sizable bump at the base of your pinky toe? If so, you could have a bunionette.

    Bunions and bunionettes can make you dread putting on your shoes. The highly trained specialists at Anderson Podiatry Center are experts in treating both of these conditions, and can help you get back on your feet with custom orthotics or corrective surgery.

    • Long-lasting relief
    • We treat the underlying cause of bunions and bunionettes, not just the symptoms
    • Most insurance plans accepted
    • Medicare-certified, state-of the art-surgery center

    Find out how Anderson Podiatry Center can help you get back on your feet—pain free.

  • Flat Foot Surgery

    Do you trip a lot? Do your feet and ankles tire easily?

    Do you get leg cramps whenever you try to do something physically active?

    Are any of these symptoms holding you back from playing sports, or participating in the activities you love?

    You could be a candidate for reconstructive foot or ankle surgery at the Anderson Podiatry Surgery Center.

    Children and adults can often have problems with the structure of their feet or ankles. The doctors at Anderson Podiatry Center commonly treat kids that have flat feet, club feet, or are pigeon-toed.

    Adult conditions can persist even after a previous treatment or surgery—flat feet or high arches that are painful, for example, as well as severe foot deformities.

    Our scope of practice includes training and expertise in:

    • Achilles tendon pain
    • Bone deformity and limb lengthening correction
    • Trauma
    • Revision of failed surgeries (still having pain after previous surgeries)
    • Acute and chronic injuries
    • Treatment of advanced arthritic conditions of the foot and ankle
    • Pediatric flatfoot and foot and ankle deformity repair
  • Foot and Ankle Fractures

    If you think you have a fractured foot or ankle, it’s time to see an expert!

    Did you recently fall or jump down from something, and feel something pop in your foot or ankle? Did you drop something on your foot? Has there been a sudden increase in your exercise levels? Or is your stubbed toe from playing soccer last weekend just not healing? You might have a foot or a toe fracture.

    Usually, the pain of a broken bone in your foot will hurt enough to prevent you from putting any weight on it. But not always! If you have a crooked toe that’s bruised and sore, and just isn’t getting better, it might be broken. Also, if you’ve recently started working out and have been putting a lot of pressure on your feet, you could have stress fractures, which are tiny cracks in the bone surface.

    The highly trained specialists at Anderson Podiatry can help you determine if a bone is broken, and can cast or splint the bone if surgery isn’t necessary.

    Don’t live another day with foot pain, bruising, or swelling caused by a fracture. Our doctors are ready to help you get back on your feet!

    • Long-lasting relief is our goal
    • Most insurance plans accepted
    • Medicare-certified, state-of the art-surgery center
  • Hammertoes

    If so, you might have a hammertoe.

    The most common cause of a hammertoe is a muscle or tendon imbalance that leads the toe to pull backward into an arched position over time. Hammertoes can also be caused by shoes that don’t fit properly or a previous injury. Hammertoes can also be genetic.

    Many people with hammertoes have no problems, but if you’re experiencing pain, corns and calluses, open sores, or inflammation, it’s time to have a podiatrist take a look.

    The doctors at Anderson Podiatry Center are experts in diagnosing and treating hammertoes. Our varied and affordable treatment options for hammertoes include:

    • Custom orthotics or padding
    • Cortisone injections, to reduce inflammation
    • Splinting or strapping
    • Reconstructive surgery

    If hammertoes are causing you pain or affecting your daily life, it’s time to get back on your feet. Our doctors are experts in treating this condition.

    • Long-lasting relief is our goal
    • Most insurance plans accepted
    • Medicare-certified, state-of the art-surgery center
  • Heel Pain

    Don’t let heel pain slow you down.

    Do you have pain in your heel that’s worse when you first get out of bed in the morning? Has your heel pain been increasing over a period of months? Does it feel like a pin is sticking into the bottom of your foot?

    You could have plantar fasciitis or heel spurs.

    The highly trained specialists at Anderson Podiatry are experts in giving you relief from chronic heel pain. In fact, we were the first podiatry center in Colorado to treat plantar fasciitis using a combination of the groundbreaking new Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy and low-intensity shockwave, which work together to reduce heel pain with minimal downtime.

    Our varied and affordable treatment options for plantar fasciitis include:

    Don’t live another day with heel pain. Our doctors are ready to help you get back on your feet!

    • Long-lasting relief is our goal
    • We treat the underlying cause of heel pain, not just the symptoms
    • Most insurance plans accepted
    • Medicare-certified, state-of the art-surgery center

    Find out how we can help reduce or get rid of your heel pain.

  • Nerve Surgery

    Don’t live with foot pain and swelling for another day.

    Do your feet get tired easily? Do you have pain in the arch of your foot or lower leg?

    Do the insides of the soles of your feet swell? Is it hard for you to stand up on your toes?

    If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you might have flat feet, also commonly called fallen arches.

    Left untreated, flat feet can often lead to arthritis and painful walking as you get older.

    Here’s a simple test to see if you have flat feet: get the soles of your feet wet, and step onto dry concrete. If you see a complete imprint of your foot, you might have flat feet.

    Although many people with this condition have no pain or problems, others experience foot pain and swelling, and even leg and back pain. If you’re experiencing pain, aching, swelling, or weakness in your feet or lower legs, the highly trained specialists at Anderson Podiatry Center might be able to help.

    Our podiatrists are experts in treating flat feet, and they can help you get back on your feet with custom orthotics or corrective surgery.

    • Long-lasting relief is our goal
    • We can treat the underlying cause of flat feet, not just the symptoms
    • Most insurance plans accepted
    • Medicare-certified, state-of the art-surgery center

    Learn about how we might be able to help you live without pain or discomfort caused by flat feet.

  • Neuroma

    Don’t let your neuroma get worse—learn about your treatment options today.

    Do you have tingling, burning, numbness, or nerve pain in your foot? Does it feel like something’s inside the ball of your foot, kind of like your sock is bunched up? You might have a neuroma.

    Typically occurring between the third and fourth toes, a neuroma is a thickening or enlargement of the nerve, usually caused by compression or nerve damage. Neuromas can happen to anyone, and are sometimes caused by shoes with tapered toe boxes (like high heels) and sports that require repetitive pounding on the ball of the foot, such as basketball.

    The highly trained specialists at Anderson Podiatry Center know what it’s like to live with a neuroma: that’s why we were the first doctors in the Rocky Mountain region to offer a groundbreaking nerve decompression treatment that can offer long-lasting relief. Our podiatrists use the latest technology to reveal the exact stage of the neuroma and determine the most appropriate actions to take.

    Our varied and affordable treatment options for neuropathy include:

    • Custom orthotics or padding
    • Cortisone injections, to reduce inflammation
    • Nerve decompression surgery
    • MLS® Laser Therapy

    Anderson Podiatry Center’s neuropathy specialists could help you reduce your medications, improve your balance, and decrease your pain.

    • Long-lasting relief is our goal
    • We treat the underlying cause of the neuroma, not just the symptoms
    • Most insurance plans accepted
    • Medicare-certified, state-of the art-surgery center

    Don’t wait! Your neuroma can progress into serious nerve damage if left untreated.

  • Pediatric Surgery

    Don’t assume your child will just “grow out” of foot problems.

    For a parent, watching a child struggle with pain or difficulty walking can be scary and confusing. Parents are often told that the child “will grow out of it,” but aren’t really given a timeframe or any direction on how to help along the process. While it is true that some pediatric foot issues resolve with time, it is more often the case that preventative and supportive treatments started early will give the child the best chance of healthy and normal development.

    Pediatric foot and ankle issues can be separated into two basic categories depending on the onset of the problem. There are issues that the child is born with and issues that can develop over time. Routine screenings done by pediatricians soon after birth catch the majority of the issues present at birth. Problems that develop more slowly can be more difficult to catch, and are often first noticed by the parents when the child begins walking.

    The highly-trained podiatrists at Anderson Podiatry Center can identify problems affecting your child’s hips, knees, ankles, and feet. We check for any limited or excessive motion, pain, weakness, or misalignment and determine severity and a course of treatment by involving you and your child in the diagnostic process.

    We can treat most childhood foot and ankle issues with exercise or therapy to strengthen weak muscles, loosen tight joints, or correct imbalances.

    For those issues that do not respond to exercise and therapy alone, we typically recommend:

    • Orthotics/Braces
    • Limiting types of shoes
    • In very few cases: surgery

    We are able to fit your child for most orthotic devices in our office and monitor their development as they grow and progress.

    Don’t wait another day hoping your child’s issue will resolve on its own.

    • We involve the entire family as well as your child in the diagnostic process to ease fears and reduce anxiety
    • Long-lasting relief is our goal
    • We treat the underlying cause of issues, not just the symptoms
    • Most insurance plans accepted

  • Reconstructive Surgery

    Don’t live with foot pain and swelling for another day.

    Do your feet get tired easily? Do you have pain in the arch of your foot or lower leg?

    Do the insides of the soles of your feet swell? Is it hard for you to stand up on your toes?

  • Tendinitis/Tendon Tears

    Don’t let persistent tendonitis progress—come in to learn about treatment options today.

    Are you experiencing pain on the inside of your foot and ankle? Does walking hurt? Are you having trouble standing up on your toes? You might have posterior tibial tendonitis, which is an inflammation of the tendon that runs from the inner ankle to the shinbone.

    Tendonitis is usually the result of a sports injury, or overexertion of the legs, ankles, and feet. It can also be caused by overloading the muscle, such as lifting too much weight when the body isn’t ready for it. While most of the time tendonitis goes away on its own, sometimes it can become a persistent problem.

    Our varied and affordable treatment options for tendonitis include:

    The highly trained specialists at Anderson Podiatry Center can help get you back on your feet.

    • Long-lasting relief is our goal
    • We treat the underlying cause of tendonitis, not just the symptoms

    • Medicare-certified, state-of the art-surgery center

    Don’t wait! Persistent tendonitis can cause permanent damage if left untreated.
