I have had the pleasure of working at St. Joseph Hospital as an orthopedic surgeon for more than 25 years. In that time, I have had the opportunity to see the quality of spinal surgery done by orthopedic surgeons and neurosurgeons. Physicians in these two specialties have worked together at St. Joseph Hospital in the best interests of the patient. This has been in the best tradition of the hospital and its dedication to the highest-quality medical care. Before your reporter indicts, by innuendo, physicians who have spent the better part of their lives rendering quality care and establishing outstanding reputations for themselves, he ought to wait and see what 25 years of practice will bring to Mark Anderson's reputation!
