A Racer's Doctor!!

This may seem off topic or maybe general moto related but I wanted the track folk to see it.

I'm now two for two with Doctor Mark Sanders!

When you walk into his waiting room you know you are in good hands. Motocross is the theme of the decor as well as cycling.

First, my dislocated shoulder back in January. After it was popped back in the ER Doc and the military doc said to keep in in a brace and let it heal. That just didn't agree with me. Thankfully the Coast Guard sent me to Dr. Sanders who asked me how I felt, what I wanted, and made a recommendation that suited me. He could have given the safe for everyone, avoid all risks, lowest common denominator answer of leave in in the sling but he didn't. I had an awesome recovery from that injury!

Today I went to see him again for my broken clavicle. EVERYONE said, keep the arm in a sling, let it heal with time. I didn't like that answer. I was wondering how the does something heal properly if it's always moving around? OH, and broken bones moving around can feel a bit weird or downright painful. Dr. Sanders apparently feels the same way. I'll be headed back to Houston next week to have my collar bone screwed back together (or whatever method he will use). He said after surgery I can resume day to day activity in 48 hours, no brace.

If you prefer a more proactive approach to treating your injuries, I highly recommend Dr. Sanders. I sum him up as efficient, to the point, and someone who treats his patients as individuals with specific needs.

I'm guessing he's an Orthepedic?
Good deal finding what sounds like a good doc.

I'm curious if there is an added risk with having it screwed back if you fall on it again. Will they remove the screws later? I am assuming they are there for the long haul though.

he's really good according to the local motocross scene. I've even shot messages back and forth with him concerning my shoulder separation...but I have yet to have a real need for his operations...

oh, and ask swift to send you pics of his new scars and bones...

yes, he is orthopedic.

Pretty centrally located off of 59

if it is anything like the screws in my jaw or the ones in my arm then whatever he uses will be left in place unless they prove to be an issue. so far the ones i already have in place are no problem.

That's debatable. I think a few screws are loose.

Just FYI, they say you can take that brace off, but trust me you will definitely want to be wearing it at least when walking around for 2-3 weeks or you'll be in a lot of pain at night.

Surgery is the way to go, I was pretty much healed up in a month instead of the probably 6 it would have taken to let it heal on its own.

I went to Chris Smith at Southwest Bone and Joint and have nothing but thumbs up for him as well.

So, you chose DeWalt over Zip Ties and Mighty Putty...

Good choice, call us if you need help with anything but cooking!

let it heal is the recommended way and I think any doc that knows his stuff will tell you that.

That any doc is also out to do the best job they can without costing very much money. Screws cost big time but you sure can get back to work very quickly. A good ortho will tell you let it heal a pro sports person will be very aggressive.

the way i see it let it heal vs. fix it in place

the gamble with let it heal is it may (probably) heal incorrectly and then if you can convince a doc to do it, you can go back in and break it and fix it in place.

the gamble with fixing it in place is, like all screw and plate fixes, later on it becomes an irritant in which case a doc goes in and removes the metal.

if it were a fracture and not a complete break i would be all about leaving it alone. i feel the bones move every time i do, and sometimes it hurts like . i can't comprehend how something moving around inside me as much as these bones move will heal properly.

conventional medicine is allot more about risk management if you ask me. yes, going under the knife adds complication. if i lived a sedentary life then letting it heal on its own might be ok. i don't however live a sedentary life. Kinda like getting on a motorcycle, I'll take the risk and gamble that in the end I'll have a better life.
