On May 14, 2018, New Orleans City Business awarded Orthopedic Surgeon, Dr. Christopher Sanchez, as one of New Orleans' Health Care Heroes of 2018! Here is a little about Dr. Sanchez and what he has to say about this GREAT accomplishment! "I am honored to receive this award!" he said, Dr. Sanchez specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of a variety of musculoskeletal disorders, he is an Orthopedic surgeon who maintains extensive training in multiple Orthopedic subspecialties. Dr. Sanchez' initial interest in medicine was sparked by his mother who described his bout with pneumonia at six years of age. His fever spiked to 104 degrees, and he had to be airlifted in an ice bath from western Kansas to Denver. She explained how a pediatric critical care physician brought him back from what she feared would be certain death. Sanchez said he uses humor to put his patients at ease. By building rapport, he is better able to communicate the treatment game plan and their role in their recovery. "Understanding promotes compliance." he said. THANK YOU DR. SANCHEZ FOR EVERYTHING YOU DO!
