Sanders, MD, is an orthopedic foot and ankle specialist certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery practicing at Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Center (OFAC) in Falls Church and Arlington, Virginia. Dr. Sanders specializes in the treatment of ankle arthritis, lower extremity trauma, and fractures of the ankle and foot (calcaneus, talus, and Lisfranc injuries). He also helps patients in the Washington, DC, area with post-traumatic reconstruction, midfoot and forefoot arthritis, flatfoot reconstruction, and bunions/hammertoes. Due to his own sports-related injury, Dr. Sanders has a special interest in minimally invasive and arthroscopic treatments for sports and athletic injuries to the foot and ankle.
Dr. Sanders attended the University of Virginia in Charlottesville for his bachelor's degree and then earned his medical degree and completed his residency at Georgetown University in Washington, DC.

After completing his residency, Dr. Sanders went on to complete a fellowship in foot and ankle surgery/lower extremity trauma and reconstruction at the Florida Orthopaedic Institute in Tampa. He 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 Washington, DC, and a member of both the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society.
