Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine

Medicine & Biosciences
Dr. Deryk Anderson is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon. After graduating Cum Laude from Utah State University with a bachelor of science degree in Nutrition Science, he earned his Doctorate of Osteopathic Medicine (DO) degree from Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences. He completed his internship in traditional osteopathic medicine through Michigan State University/Metro Health Hospital. He then completed his residency in orthopedic surgery at Midwestern University in Chicago, Illinois —where he earned the role of Chief Orthopedic Resident.
Prior to joining OPA in 2015, Dr. Anderson practiced orthopedic medicine with Advanced Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Institute in Hermiston, Oregon. Dr. Anderson specializes in preventing and treating sports injuries. During his training in Chicago, he had the privilege of working with team physicians for multiple professional sports teams. He has also been serving as team physician for the Tri City Americans, a WHL Major Junior Hockey Team.
As part of his adult reconstruction practice, Dr. Anderson is pleased to offer his patients the direct anterior total hip arthroplasty. This approach gives patients a quicker recovery with less pain and minimal if any restrictions following hip replacement.
As a D.O., Dr. Anderson brings a unique perspective to orthopedic treatment. Although certified and credentialed just like any other surgeon, he also has specialized training in preventive care and the integration of the body’s systems to the body’s natural healing process.
Dr. Anderson excited to return to his home state with his wife and 4 children. In addition to spending time fishing, hunting and skiing, he wholeheartedly gives back to his community. He has previously volunteered coaching various youth sport teams and as an Eagle Scout, stays involved as an Assistant Scout Master. He and his family look forward to living, playing and serving in the Mat-Su community.

Dr. Anderson is exceptional in his bedside care, in office care and his surgical skills are beyond extraordinary. He has been very friendly, informative, patient and skillful. My ONLY complaint is when calling in to his office for pain meds. Each time they make me feel like an abuser. I have kept a journal of when I take my meds, what time, my pain level and have always kept well below what has been prescribed. Anytime it comes up to call, I feel stressed and have anxiety. I understand the opioid crisis but holy moly, if I’m still taking them in three months, we’ll talk. Two weeks post op questioning my use was difficult. I was on the phone over an hour trying to convince them I could not go two days without pain meds. I realize they have protocol but come on. Like I said I wasn’t even taking the suggested doseage on the bottle. Bottom line, I totally think Dr. Anderson changed my life for the better. I will refer him to everyone I know needing a orthopedic surgeon. He really is THE BEST.
