Within this specialty, Dr. Swanson particularly enjoys orthopedics, neurosurgery, and physical rehabilitation. In her spare time, Dr. Swanson enjoys cooking, baking, crocheting, reading, being outdoors, and spending time with her family, as well as her dog Bella, cat Mr. Meowington, and chinchilla Tucker.
