Steven J. Anderson, MD, specializes in sports medicine and has a particular interest in problems unique to the pediatric and adolescent-age athlete. In his practice, he takes the time to identify the causes of sports injuries and complex musculoskeletal conditions. After establishing an accurate diagnosis, he orchestrates conservative treatment programs that are comprehensive and multidisciplinary.
In addition to caring for active individuals of all ages, he cares for the United States Diving Team, Pacific Northwest Ballet, and numerous local high school and club teams. He is also actively involved in teaching sports medicine and primary care orthopedics to medical students, residents, specialty fellows, and practicing physicians both locally and nationally. He was the editor of both editions (2000, 2010) of Care of the Young Athlete, a textbook on sports medicine published jointly by the American Academy of Pediatrics and American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. He has served as chair of the Committee on Sports Medicine and Fitness for the American Academy of Pediatrics, as a member of the American Board of Pediatrics Examination Committee, as the Physician Director for the Board of Certification of the National Athletic Trainer Association, and on the Medical Advisory Committee for the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association.
Outside of work, he enjoys swimming, golf, travel, urban exploration, home remodeling projects, and spending time with family and friends.
