UAMS Opens Orthopaedic & Spine Clinic in North Little Rock

By Linda Satter

Among the specialties treated at the clinic are foot and ankle orthopaedics, hand and upper extremity orthopaedics, hip and knee orthopaedics, shoulder and elbow orthopaedics, sports medicine, spine care and interventional pain management.

Physicians, nurses and therapists work as a team at the clinic to provide expert care to improve mobility, reduce pain and get patients back to living their normal lives.

“UAMS Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine is so excited to bring our subspecialty patient-centered approach to North Little Rock,” said C. Lowry Barnes, M.D., chair of the UAMS College of Medicine Department of Orthopaedic Surgery.

“Our goal,” Barnes said, “is always to provide the best care by a doctor specializing in the area of orthopaedics most needed by the patient. We also know that location of care matters and believe that the opening of this clinic in North Little Rock, combined with the scheduled June 1 opening of the The Orthopaedic and Spine Hospital at UAMS’ main campus in Little Rock, is a huge win for patients.”

The clinic is open from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Appointments for new patients are available by calling 501-526-1046, and the direct number to the clinic is 501-526-5451.
