Dr. Sameer Nagda, the current president of the Anderson Clinic, has been working towards a certification in Surgical Leadership offered at Harvard Medical School/Harvard Business School. The course was one year long and included several weeks throughout the year that Dr. Nagda spent at Harvard. In addition, there were online classes and lectures as well as a final project. “It was a great program that has given me a lot of excellent tools to be a better leader for our group as we venture forward into the next decade.” He was among a group of 130 surgeons from around the world who graduated from the program this past week.
Congratulations to Meg who reached her goal of climbing to the top of Bright Angle trail and Old Rag Mountain at the Grand Canyon this summer, exactly one year after her surgery with Dr. Saddler.
“I feel really great and am so happy I had the repair made – bone spur removed from the head of the femur and labral repair where the cartilage had been torn by the spur. The recovery was quite long because the injury happened over time and so all my muscles needed serious retraining/strengthening.
I simply could not have done these hikes pre-surgery and it made me very happy to have transitioned to a place where I can do a lot more physically than I could do before.”
The Anderson Clinic is excited to welcome Dr. Robert Sershon to the practice! Dr. Sershon is a fellowship-trained hip and knee replacement surgeon specializing in muscle sparing anterior hip replacement, minimally invasive knee replacement, and robotic assisted surgery. He is a Chicago native, where he completed medical school and residency at Rush University Hospital System. He then completed his one-year fellowship in hip and knee replacement surgery at The Anderson Orthopaedic Research Institute and was invited to join the practice.
A pioneer of the robotic surgery program at Anderson Clinic, Dr. Sershon and his team are dedicated to developing and investigating novel operative techniques to enhance recovery and improve patient outcomes. As an NCAA swimming national champion (turned running enthusiast), Dr. Sershon understands the importance of providing patients an accelerated recovery that allows them to return to the activities they love in a safe and timely fashion.
“Everything my team does centers on improving our patients’ lives. Whether it is individualizing patient care, innovating surgical techniques, or performing influential research, our team is committed to making our patients better in everything we do.”
He will be seeing patients at all four of our locations.

Congratulations to Dr. George Branche, who served his 28th year on the medical team for the USA 2019 Citi Open Tennis Tournament. Unique among tennis tournaments, the Citi Open is owned by the nonprofit Washington Tennis & Education Foundation and allocates a portion of its proceeds to funding its mission of breaking the cycle of poverty in the city’s underserved communities through free tennis and educational programs for children. This year’s tournament made history, as 15 year old Coco Grauff and 17 year old Caty McNally secured the Women’s Double Championship. Nick Krygios had a spectacular performance as he took home the Citi Open title.
Dr. Branche always had a love for tennis, whose own serve clocked in at 115 mph. His passion for tennis paired with his clinical expertise makes him the ideal candidate to treat world class athletes.

Dr. Nagda recently spent several days presenting to Students at Carl Sandburg Middle School’s Career Carnival. Dr. Nagda volunteered to explain to the students what its like to be an orthopaedic surgeon and a sports medicine specialist. He shared his career path, and showed videos of surgery and sports injuries. Over 150 students listened to his presentation over the two day career carnival. “I think it is important to get kids interested in a career in helping others and medicine at an early age. Hopefully I will have an impact on at least one students career choice!”
