TAMPA, FLA. (Nov. 1, 2012) – Florida Orthopaedic Institute announces the recognition of Dr. Roy Sanders as one of the “Top 29 U.S. Orthopedic Traumatologists” reported by Orthopedics This Week and RRY Publications.
Thought leaders and actively practicing physicians across the United States were asked to name the surgeons they hold in highest regard as professionals – surgeons with whom they have personally worked and would recommend to others.
“National recognition such as this allows our patients to feel confident in being seen by one of our 35 highly skilled and board-certified physicians. We are proud and this acknowledgement exemplifies the high-level work and expertise that we provide to patients in the Tampa Bay Area and beyond,” says Marc Katzin, chief operating officer of Florida Orthopaedic Institute.
As the current president of Florida Orthopaedic Institute, Dr. Sanders is recognized nationally and internationally for treating patients seeking orthopedic trauma and foot and ankle care, as well as for patenting an intramedullary nailing system for long bone fractures, which has been used in more than 750,000 patients worldwide. Dr. Sanders also serves as the current chief of the department of orthopedics and is the director of the orthopedic trauma department at Tampa General Hospital.
In addition to patient care, FOI is nationally recognized through its Foundation for Orthopaedic Research and Education and its fellowship-training program, offered exclusively for orthopedic providers of the future.
