I would highly recommend Dr Sanders for choosing a surgeon. I just had a full knee replacement by Dr Sanders. He is meticulous, he is great surgeon, and has a great "bed side manner"!

I had a total knee replacement on Jan 3rd, 2017 and could not be happier. At 60 years old my left knee was sore all the time and my quality of life was deteriorating quickly. I love to golf, hike, bike and walk but it became almost unbearable to walk more than 1/4 mile. after 6 weeks I can do...more

Dr. Sanders is a compassionate, careful surgeon. He did everything i could have asked for in the surgery to replace my arthritic left knee with TKR. I highly recommend him and won't hesitate to do it again on my right knee if necessary.
