Welcome to Shenandoah Valley Orthopedics and Sports Medicine

Our practice was established in Waynesboro, Virginia in 1976 by Dr. Charles F. Andersen and Dr. Ronald Rau as Orthopedic Associates, Ltd.  It quickly built a reputation for providing the highest quality of orthopedic care. Through the years, the practice has grown to 5 doctors with combined 50+ years of orthopedic surgery experience.

Shenandoah Valley Orthopedics and Sports Medicine has now been more appropriately named to better reflect our location and the full scope of our practice with our expertise in sports medicine. We extend a warm welcome to our current patients and new patients. We are privileged to serve the community with exceptional orthopedic care for conditions of musculoskeletal extremities including joint replacement, arthroscopic surgery, sports medicine and nonsurgical treatment and care.

Our board-certified orthopedic surgeons share two main goals: restoring function to joints and bones and alleviating pain. We offer continuity of care from the evaluation appointment to the cleared for return to activity day. We look forward to taking care of each of our patients by listening and custom designing treatment plans that will offer the most effective and safest return to activity for you.  

We do not examine or treat patients with back/spine/neck conditions. We do not perform surgical procedures regarding the spine. We hope this allows us to more effectively treat the growing need of patients with other orthopedic problems.
