At Sander Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine, we manage
a wide range of orthopaedic care, including

Fracture Treatment

Fractures due to trauma or overuse can affect people of all ages. If you have a fracture, you can trust that the experts at Sander Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine will provide the most exceptional care.

Knee and Shoulder Arthroscopy

Arthroscopy is a type of surgery that uses a small camera to repair tissues. The specialists at Sander Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine offer expert diagnosis and surgical treatment for shoulders and knees.

Knee and Hip Replacement

If you’re suffering from knee or hip pain, there are a number of treatment options. When surgery is needed, our team provides top-quality care that will help you resume your normal activities as soon as possible.

Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Reconstruction

ACL reconstruction is a surgery to replace the ligament in the center of the knee. We strive to deliver the best possible outcome, resulting in less pain, fewer complications, and faster recovery time.

Rotator Cuff Tear Repair – Arthroscopic

Rotator cuff tears are a common reason for shoulder pain. If surgery is necessary, we use minimally invasive arthroscopic techniques, which result in better outcomes and shorter overall recovery time.

Shoulder Instability Repair – Arthroscopic

An unstable shoulder may slip partially or all the way out of the socket. We offer arthroscopic shoulder instability repair that minimizes pain, reduces complications, and shortens overall recovery time.
