WHAT OUR PATIENTS SAY ABOUT ARKANSAS SURGICAL HOSPITAL

I endured the physical abuse of rice and soybean farming in the buckshot mud of southeast Arkansas for over 40 years. Add to that arthritic and bowed knees. To say that I had pain was a gross understatement. Because of the fine surgical skills of Dr. Scott Bowen and the excellent care I received at Arkansas Surgical Hospital, I experienced two total knee replacements that now allow me the pain free pleasure of yard work, golf and keeping up with 8 grandchildren.”

We love Dr. Ken Martin. We love the care we got at Arkansas Surgical Hospital and would come again if needed. Everything is so clean and friendly! We would recommend the hospital to everyone. Our granddaughter told us about the hospital, and when we learned that this is where Dr. Martin does surgery, it was the best choice for us."

spinal stenosis treatment epidural injection in Arkansas

Can Epidural Injections Lessen the Pain of Your Spinal Stenosis?

Millions of Americans suffer from back and neck pain. If you suffer from chronic back pain caused by spinal stenosis, epidural injections may help relieve your pain.

Spinal stenosis occurs when joints in the spinal canal grow larger, narrowing the space between cervical disks and placing pressure on the spine. Stenosis typically occurs in the neck or lumbar region of the back. Spinal stenosis is most common in men and women over 50 years of age and grows increasingly common as aging progresses. Paget's disease, traumatic injuries, and tumor growth may also contribute to stenosis.
