Orthopedic Services

We understand the importance of keeping you active and mobile. When you experience issues with your bones, tendons, or joints, our orthopedic services are here to support you on your journey towards a fulfilling life. From injury prevention and recovery to total joint replacement and rehabilitation, we offer comprehensive orthopedic care tailored to your needs.

Our orthopedic specialists at South Arkansas Regional Hospital prioritize patient-centered care in a multidisciplinary setting. With advancements in medical technology, joint replacement therapy has become a highly effective option for treating chronic joint pain caused by conditions like arthritis, degenerative joint diseases, or injuries. Our dedicated orthopedic care team consists of orthopedic doctors, surgeons, pain management specialists, and physical therapists who work together to provide comprehensive care.

Our orthopedic surgery services include:

Arthritis Care: Living with arthritis pain can be incredibly challenging. It not only hampers your ability to enjoy the activities you love but also makes even the simplest movements incredibly difficult. At South Arkansas Regional Hospital, we understand the impact arthritis can have on your life, and our dedicated team of doctors, nurses, and therapists are here to help.

Total Joint Replacement: We offer comprehensive total joint replacement surgeries to address chronic joint conditions that cause pain and limit mobility. Our experienced orthopedic surgeons specialize in joint replacements for knees, hips, shoulders, and elbows.

During a total joint replacement procedure, the damaged joint surfaces are replaced with artificial implants, designed to replicate the natural movement and function of the joint. This surgical intervention provides relief from pain, improves joint function, and enhances overall quality of life. Our orthopedic team works closely with patients to ensure they are well-informed about the procedure, including the pre-operative preparations, the surgery itself, and the post-operative recovery process.

Partial Knee Replacement: For patients with targeted knee conditions, a partial knee replacement may be an appropriate treatment option. This surgical procedure involves replacing only the damaged or affected part of the knee joint, preserving the healthy portions. By targeting the specific area of concern, a partial knee replacement offers a more focused and precise solution, allowing for improved joint function and reduced pain.

Hip Resurfacing: Hip resurfacing is a specialized surgical procedure suitable for select cases where the hip joint’s surface is damaged but the overall joint structure remains intact. In this procedure, the damaged surface of the hip joint is reshaped and capped with a metal prosthesis, preserving more of the patient’s natural bone compared to a total hip replacement. Hip resurfacing can provide pain relief, improve mobility, and restore functionality, particularly in younger patients with healthy bone quality.

Minimally Invasive Surgical Options: We understand the importance of offering surgical options that minimize trauma, reduce scarring, and promote faster recovery. Our orthopedic surgeons specialize in minimally invasive techniques for joint replacement surgeries. These procedures utilize smaller incisions, specialized instruments, and advanced imaging technology to access and replace the damaged joint while minimizing disruption to surrounding tissues.

Minimally invasive surgical options provide several benefits, including shorter hospital stays, reduced post-operative pain, faster healing, and quicker return to daily activities. Our orthopedic team will assess your condition and determine if you are a candidate for minimally invasive surgery, ensuring the most appropriate treatment plan for your individual needs.

We believe in preparing our patients thoroughly before surgery and supporting their recovery to regain mobility. You will receive clear guidance and support throughout your orthopedic journey, from the pre-surgery phase to the post-operative period. Our orthopedic care professionals are dedicated to delivering high-quality care, from accurate diagnosis to comprehensive recovery.

Trust our orthopedic experts to provide you with exceptional care every step of the way.
