Mark Sanders was born in Brooklyn, New York. He received his MD degree with Honors from Downstate Medical Center in 1981. He completed his Orthopaedic Surgery training at SUNY Stony Brook Hospitals in 1986. Since 1986, Dr. Sanders has practiced in the Houston, Texas area. He is certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery and is a Fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. His interests include the treatment of both ligamentous and bony injuries of the knee. He has served as head team physician for several high schools and junior colleges. Currently, he serves as team physician for the Renegades and is the Official Health Care Provider for Houston Supercross. His current knee research concerns knee injuries in motocross athletes and the efficacy of prophylactic knee bracing in motocross racing. Dr. Sanders believes that, at all times, wisdom should prevail over the use of new and generally unproven technology. He further believes that all efforts should be made to treat knee injuries without surgery. When surgery is necessary, he is passionate about presurgical preparation of the knee, the use of only autogenous sources of graft tissue, and the importance of immediate range of motion and weight bearing after knee ligament reconstruction, meniscal repair or resection, and patella realignment surgery.
