Bruce T Henderson, MD

Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeon located in Pontiac, MI

Bruce Henderson, MD, is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon at Oakland Orthopedic in Pontiac, Michigan. As a fellow in the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, Dr. Henderson has been fortunate to help patients for over 42 years. 

Dr. Henderson believes that we were designed by our Creator to have a marvelous and intricate musculoskeletal system that can function and even restore itself with proper self-care and, when necessary, with the help of orthopedic treatment. His primary goal is to help guide patients through that process to maximize the restorative powers that God has given us. 

One of the most rewarding parts of orthopedic surgery is the ability to identify and define precisely what is causing the pain or symptoms of each patient. While the majority of patients’ problems can be treated nonoperatively, when necessary, orthopedic surgery often can fix and restore the problem. It is a blessing for Dr. Henderson to see the remarkable improvement that orthopedic procedures can provide for his patients.

Some of the common procedures he performs are total knee replacement, total hip replacement, total shoulder replacement, knee arthroscopy for torn meniscus cartilage and arthritis, open rotator cuff repair, arthroscopic anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACL), minimally invasive spine surgery, and kyphoplasty.
