Andrew C. Gerdeman, M.D., is a fellowship-trained sports medicine specialist, with an emphasis on advanced arthroscopic techniques of the shoulder and knee. His expertise includes arthroscopic rotator cuff repair, arthroscopic stabilization for shoulder dislocations, and arthroscopic labral repair (SLAP repair). He also specializes in the treatment of patella dislocations, meniscus repair, cartilage restoration procedures, and complex multiple ligament reconstructions of the knee.

Dr. Gerdeman enjoys the special relationships he develops with patients and athletes: “I love what I do, and I treat all my patients as I would treat my own family.” He serves as team physician at Skidmore College as well as several high schools in the Capital Region.

“Awesome experience. Dr. Gerdeman listened carefully to our daughter's issue and delivered a frank assessment and persuasive instructions. I particularly liked how he came through with our daughter, more like a coach able to communicate relatively bad news in a friendly way. I am sure his communication style alone made the situation 10,000 times better.”

Patient Rating:

“Doctor Gerdeman was very pleasant, and he was very clear. The assistant, Lindsey, was very nice. My wife was with me. They both were kind to her as well. Doctor Gerdeman recommended therapy and muscle relaxers. Very happy with service. Checking out was easy, very friendly. When we got there, we both were nervous, but the front desk was straightforward and made it easy. Thanks again.”
