lower extremity trauma, and fractures of the ankle and foot
(calcaneus, talus, and Lisfranc injuries). He also helps patients with

received additional, specialized training for both surgical and
non-surgical treatments of foot and ankle injuries and diseases,
including total ankle arthroplasty. During both his residency and
fellowship, Dr. Sanders treated elite level professional, Olympic and
collegiate athletes.

Outside of his work at Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Center, Dr. Sanders is
an assistant professor at Georgetown University Medical Center in
