Ratings for Dr. David Sauder
Broke both wrists in march of 2015, breaking my left and completely shattering my right. Off work for 4 months. I was told by the doctor who originally worked on my wrists that I would have only 70% motion in my left and maybe 65% in my right if I was lucky. I healed better than the original doctor thought BUT When I asked him about surgery to recover more movement in my right he said it would do more harm than good. No bad feelings toward the hospital surgeon, he did a good job but I asked for a second opinion. He sent me to Dr. Sauder. After a couple xrays he laid out a plan of attack. He ended up cutting a 7 cm chunk out of my outside arm bone, because of how it healed the two bones in my right were different lengths. After 6 weeks with a hardened wrist brace I went back for a checkup. He said he was very impressed with how I healed, and I have 90% range of motion. He did a fantastic job. I can only speak about my experience but I found him to be curt and to the point, knowledgeable and thorough.
I am a 60 yr old male in good health. 11 yrs ago my left hand was cut in half completely between the ring and middle finger all the way back thru the wrist in a work related injury. 9 surgery's later and for the past 5 years I suffered pain 24/7 from a neuroma. Nobody believed me especially WCB. Dam them, they tried to send me back to work. I was thru numerous doctors and finally a recommendation to Dr. Sauder. He was kind and listened my symptoms and agreed it was a neuroma and understood my pain level. Saw him March 22/17 and had surgery May 15/17. Woke up from the surgery and the pain was gone. No swelling, incision healed very well, just a bit tender for a while. Never took one painkiller after surgery. This man is one intelligent DR. and knows what he is doing. If I could give him 10 stars rating i would. His staff was professional, his bedside manners are great. This man is my hero and I told him that when I went for the surgery follow-up. THANK YOU DR SAUDER FOR GIVING ME MY LIFE BACK. God bless you.
Travelled for this appointment and it was a huge waste of time. His bedside manner horrible. His solution to my severe tennis elbow of 2 years was to tell me that if I came to see him in 5 years it would be better then it is now! No solution. I have had wore bands, iced, had physio, cortizone injections, paid for MRI and was told there was over a 50% tear. I then I paid $1200 for a PRP injection which did NOT help and I've been on pain patch to just to have any sort of quality of life. He was my 2nd opinion because the original surgeon had told me my only options left was PRP or surgery. When I asked about the surgery she said she would make small incision and go in and mess things up to make it worse and then close up. Who even says that to a patient. Everything I have researched mentions cleaning up any dead tissue and fix the tear by re-attaching. Hopefully I will manage to find a surgeon who actually give me more of a solution than 'going in and making things worse' or just telling me that if I come back in 5 years it'd be better than it is now. Never have I been so frustrated.
I had a complete elbow replacement done on my left elbow Dr Sauder was very informative and answered all questions this was my third surgery on this arm over the past 27 years the first by Dr Sauder and by all measures the best of the surgeons I would strongly recommend him, he is the type of surgeon that all should strive to be. All I can say is thank you doctor I know it has only been 2 and a half weeks but I have noticed a big difference. For anyone requiring his services listen to him follow his instructions he knows what he is talking about
Great doctor. I seen him first in 2011 and was he told me the procedure he would do to fix my wrist. He recommended I wait until I couldn't stand the pain anymore before I came back for surgery. I seen him again July of 2015, had surgery in September of 2015 and had my last follow up January of 2016. Every time I seen him he was very thorough and was always smiling and a delight to be around. His receptionist was great as well, she was very accommodating with back and forth faxing of my insurance papers and waiting for me to pay when I came for next appointment (knowing I love 3 hours drive from the office). Overall great experience with Dr. Sauder, I am I bit sad I won't be seeing him anymore.
I have recently had a great experience with Dr Sauder and his staff. He treated me as a person, not just another patient. The staff at his office are also great. His receptionist had always been helpful and getting me in to see Dr Sauder as I needed. The staff at te prairieview surgical centre were over the top. My whole experience from my first consult, to my follow up after surgery has been pleasant. Thank you Dr. Sauder and your amazing medical team!!
