Dr. Sanders fixed my hip so I can walk. He also stopped the pain. I would highly recommend him. He has a staff that answers any of your questions. Thank you

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 almost anything. Still working on range of motion but that is getting better each day. Dr. Sanders says I am progressing nicely and has been very helpful in explaining the procedure & recovery. A+

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.
in Hutchinson, MN |
Has a great attitude. Answered all my questions that I asked. had my surgery in the Olivia MN hospital. Had a very positive experience. Will be doing my left knee at same place with the same doctor.

My experiences with Dr. Sanders began with an appointment for hip pain in 2013. I found him to be very professional, personable, friendly, and ready to listen to my description of my symptoms. The arthritis in my hip required hip replacement surgery two years later, During that time, Dr. Sander's continued to treat me, and his professionalism reassured me I was in good hands. Now, two months post-surgery and completely healed, I know I was right! I cannot recommend him highly enough!
