We have been seeing Dr. Sanders for the last 9 years and wouldn’t trust our daughter to anyone else. He is compassionate, knowledgeable and always willing to answer both our questions and our daughters. He was able to work with us on timing for both her surgeries. He knew about the Majec Rods getting FDA approval and waiting until our daughter could get them clearly a medical miracle for her. But most importantly Dr Sanders treats us like family. We will miss him when he goes to Wake Forest!!

My daughter is a patient of Dr. Sanders and she recently had surgery. He was amazing. There is no other doctor I would have taken her to see or do the surgery. He is a caring and understanding doctor and took the time to talk to all of us about the whole process of the surgery. I highly recommend him.

You will not find a better surgeon than Dr. Sanders! My 10 year old son with a neuromuscular disease had spinal fusion surgery six months ago and we went out of network to have him as my son’s surgeon. Dr. Sanders was knowledgeable, kind, compassionate and had a fantastic bedside manner. He was calming to both my son and me and his whole team provided phenomenal care. They were patient with my questions and addressed my son and his questions with dignity and respect. He’s a phenomenal doctor!

Dr. Sanders has done an amazing job , with my son seeing him in just 1 visit we were able to get some resolution as to what actually needed to be done after seeing a different orthopedic for almost 10 months! Very happy with where we are at now and leave another review after my son has had his surgery!

Dr. Sanders is very thorough, very caring. He is always quite respectful of my young daughter and her needs. He always answers questions thoroughly and explains procedures, radiographs and treatments. Very professional with a wonderful bedside manner. We have seen Dr. Sanders on and off for 10 years for multiple and complicated orthopedic issues and I completely trust him with my daughter's care,
