By ChaseYavondaC

OrthoNow will be open 5-8 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m. – noon Saturdays for general orthopaedics issues. Patients will not need to call in advance to schedule an appointment.

“Our department strives to provide the most patient and family focused orthopaedic care,” said C. Lowry Barnes, M.D., chair of the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery in the UAMS College of Medicine. “We know issues can and will arise outside normal clinic hours and we hope this after-hours availability can be a tremendous help to our patients as we strive to improve their access to world-class care.”

Therapy appointments can also be scheduled during the extended hours. To schedule therapy, or for more information, call (501) 320-7772 or click here.
