Not sure what to say?

I was saddened to hear of Dr sanders passing after returning to texas after many years. I met Dr sanders when I was 16 for scoliosis treatment. He performed my spinal fusion at Santa rosa in 1972. His skills made my life possible. What I remember to this day, was the care and compassion he showed, not just to me, but my entire family. A kinder man I never knew in all my travels. Condolences from our family to yours. Blue skies clear horizons
Dr sanders.

I just learned of Doc's passing. I had the pleasure of taking Al fishing for Trout on the Guadalupe for many years. He just loved being to hooked up on a Trout. He seemed to be always smiling and having a great time reguardless of the numbers of fish he caught. I know he'll be in heaven picking out a good fishin' spot. Smooth sailing my friend!

So sad to hear that Dr. Sanders has passed. He performed surgery on me 50 years ago when I was just 15 yrs old and had scoliosis. He changed my life! And I thought of him often. He was such a kind and caring doctor. I will always be thankful for what he did for me. My condolences to his family.

I used to work for Dr. Sanders and have always regarded him as the kindest person I have ever met - just a beautiful soul. My condolences on this tremendous loss for humanity.

I knew Dr. Sanders as an orthopedic nurse and cared for many of his patients, especially his scoliosis patients-many Harrington Rod instrumentations. He was caring, compassionate, and had the best "Texas" Spanish accent I have ever heard. He taught me so much as a nurse and changed the lives of so many people for the better. I remember he would bring patient's back from the valley in Texas to be treated and some of them had so little and no insurance, that never stopped him from...

I first met Dr. Sanders when I was in grade school in the late 60's. My family Dr. Richard Hernandez, Jr. sent me to him because I was having back pain. My mom made an appointment and was a bit nervous because she spoke more Spanish than English and was afraid she would not be able to communicate clearly with Dr. Sanders. But Dr. Sanders knew Spanish and spoke it well. I continued seeing him as a patient into adulthood because I had kyphoscolisis and was getting treatment by him. I later...

Dr. Sanders was a very special man. His kindness and generosity were so apparent to all who knew him. He and I shared a special bond in our respect for the Vietnamese people. Unbeknownst to many is the fact that Dr. Sanders traveled to Vietnam, on more than one occasion, and at his own expense, to teach Vietnamese orthopedic surgeons new, state of the art procedures, for dealing with injured people in the aftermath of the war. He also gave Vietnamese hospitals equipment to facilitate their...

Dr. Saners was one of a kind with his kindness and compassion. The medical profession has truly lost a great man. My sister and I owe him a debt of gratitude as he operated on both of us..her as a child and me as an adult. He was first and foremost in scoliosis and was always perfecting the procedure...and training others! God bless his family during this time..heaven truly gained an angel!

I worked for Dr. Sanders for about 11 years. Never have I met anyone that showed the kindness and compassion towards others as he did. I have and share so many joyous memories of him. I will forever hold these in my heart. Rest in peace sweet friend. Prayers and my deepest sympathies for your loved ones.
