Dr. James Andrews is an internationally known and respected orthopedic surgeon recognized for treating some of the most high-profile professional and collegiate athletes in the U.S. However, Andrews Sports Medicine & Orthopaedic Center wanted to change the perception that they only serve prominent athletes and sought to attract a broader market.


To increase their appeal to 35 to 55-year-old “weekend warriors” and simplify appointment scheduling, Healthgrades incorporated responsive, mobile-first design, developed user personas from multiple data sources and implemented a streamlined 2-step physician search.

The new site’s key design elements of high-contrast, angled section separators capture the feeling of motion and speed, while the homepage’s bold, short messaging, confident typefaces, and striking photography engage users wanting “to aggressively pursue victory over injury.”
