Whether it’s in the offices at 150 Gentilly Boulevard or roaming the sidelines at a Woodland High School sporting event, Harbin Clinic Orthopaedic Surgeon Dr. Jason Andersen stands ready to help athletes of all ages if injuries occur.
“I’m excited to serve as team physician for Woodland High School Athletics,” Dr. Andersen says. “I look forward to working with the players, coaches and training staff to keep Woodland athletes healthy.”
Dr. Andersen brings a wealth of orthopaedic and sports medicine knowledge to his role. He grew up playing travel and high school soccer and played collegiately for Harvard.
After graduating from Harvard, Dr. Andersen received his medical degree at Temple University in Philadelphia. He served an Orthopaedic Surgery Residency at Wake Forest Baptist Health in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, and then completed a Sports Medicine Fellowship at OrthoCarolina in Charlotte.
Along with his normal office hours and time spent on the sidelines, Dr. Andersen offers a Monday morning Walk-In Sports Clinic from 7 to 8 a.m., giving athletes of all ages a chance to come in and be seen before having to go to work or school.
“Injuries can happen at any time. I’m available to help patients whenever injuries occur,” Dr. Andersen says. “I want to ensure they get the proper treatment, so they can get back to doing the activities they enjoy.”
