Total Knee and Hip Replacement Video

Find out what to expect from your Total Knee or Hip Replacement procedure


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."
