The SRO Story

In 1946, Dr. Carl E. Anderson, one of Santa Rosa’s first orthopaedic surgeons founded Santa Rosa Orthopaedics. In the 1960’s, he was joined by Dr. R. Dee Robbins, Dr. T. Wesley Hunter, and Dr. Freeman W. Born. They started with a small office across the street from Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital, and served the community with three exam rooms, and an X-ray room.
