Care Philosophy

Our practice is based on individualized care of each paitent. Nonsurgical treatments are utilized before surgical treatments. Our surgical treatments are evidence based and time tested. I do not follow untested trends promoted for profit by the medical supply industry. When surgery is performed we use reason and minimally traumatic technique over excessive reliance on technology - judging our results on the time it takes our patients to return to normal life and the sports/activities they enjoy.

Patient Comments (6)
Houston, TX |
Hands down the worst, least helpful, & most pessimistic doctor I've ever seen. His diagnosis was a very serious one where surgery I was told would be the only option for me if I wanted to continue being an active person. It was a soul crushing diagnosis he showed no sympathy for so I went to another doctor for a second opinion who sent me to physical therapy. Long story short I discovered Dr. Sanders was dead wrong in his diagnosis and treatment suggestion. Horrible experience 100%.

Dr. Mark Sanders made a wrong diagnosis without even looking at my X-rays and based on that he performed surgery on me! Dr. Mark Sanders never provided me with Pre or post operation instructions. When I went back to his office to ask what I need to do to reduce the pain, he was EXTREMELY RUDE since I didn't know how to reduce the scar tissues that had already formed!!!! 4 months after the Surgery and enduring lots of pain I decided to see another Orthopedic Surgeon. He showed me on the x-R

Dr. Sanders performed ORIF surgery to fix a collarbone malunion. After being turned down by two previous doctors, I chose an out of state procedure with Dr. Sanders because of his wealth of knowledge and unbelievable experience with broken collar bones. He successfully lengthened and reconstructed the collar bone with plate and screws and the shoulder and bone are 100% pain free. I was very impressed with the facilities and knowledgeable staff. I highly recommend Dr. Sanders!!!!

This doctor is nothing but a scam artist. He will hard sell you into unnecessary surgery and get you to the most expensive laboratory to do different testing. He sent me to do a MRI and an X-ray that cost $1,100. The doctor office visit alone cost $375. Please stay away from him.

He talked alot about himself and had lots of stories to tell. He talked down to me and my daughter about our injury to try to make us feel like we knew nothing and he knew everything. He accused us of things he had no business saying. He wanted to do alot of tests and surgeries on both of us immediately. I came to find out that his diagnosis was ALL wrong and we are on our way to healing just fine with out him. Do Not go to this Dr!

He never returned phone calls about results of MRI and cancelled apt at the last minute and was unable to reschedule within the same week.
