Kenton Hagan, M.D. | David Yakin, M.D. | Chris Arnold, M.D. | Eric Heim, M.D.


Since the first visit to the surgery center, I had nothing but kindness coming from everybody. The whole office staff at the clinic to the staff at the surgery center. They showed me kindness and made me feel comfortable having the surgery. This place is a wonderful place.

I would like to thank Dr. Arnold and his team for the excellent care I received in March 2020 during and after my knee surgery (Arthroscopy). I am so grateful to Dr. Arnold for making me feel better. Advanced Orthopedic Specialists offer exceptional care and should I require future orthopedic services then this is where I shall go.

Our Daughter had a torn spring ligament. As an athlete for Bentonville this was a huge obstacle! Dr. Yakin had the proper guidance and treatment for her. He was upfront and honest about the lengthy time frame an injury like this takes and took a noninvasive approach. It was successful! About 11 months later she was back at it on the track!

I have had knee problems since 1998 and my recent surgery with Doctor Arnold has left me problem free! I literally lived a nightmare for 26 years. Anytime I did any kind of athletics my knee would dislocate.
Samantha Morris  
I had several knee dislocations and I was very blessed to have found Dr. Arnold, him and his team took incredible care of me.
Jake Canady  
My husband and I have been patients of Advanced Orthopaedic Specialists on 4 different occasions during the past 18 months. Between the two of us, we have been treated by 3 doctors, have had 2 surgeries and served by several other staff members. I want to express appreciation for the service we have received.
Barbara Batson  
Major success with both knees. My advice is to listen to your doctor and do your PT. I am so impressed with Dr. Arnold. I thought before that was just my way of life.
Charlotte C.  
We recently moved to the area and I was a bit nervous about finding new physicians for my medical needs. The Advanced Orthopedic Clinic certainly calmed my nerves! The office was very efficient and the surgeon very down to earth. I came out feeling very relieved that I had gone to the right place. The physician had a great bedside manner. Thank you Lord for supplying educated and willing physicians to care for us.
Helen Lee  
I drove 65 miles each way to see the physical therapists at Advanced ORthopaedics, and it was the best decision i ever made. They got me back on my feet again - when other therapists couldn't help. I also learned it doesn't have to be a painful experience! the staff at AOS has genuine kindness and empathy as they worked with me to get my knees w...
Ann juckett  
2 weeks post-op, and so far I have had nothing but positive encounters with the team at AOS. In-person encounters have been pleasant & professional and the app has been helpful pre & post surgery. My questions/concerns have been responded to promptly.
Edith Andrews  
This is the best thing I've ever done for my body. Dr. Arnold and his staff are fantastic. I'm a very active person and I highly encourage Dr. Arnold for joint replacement...and to follow the instruction from therapy. I can ride my horses again without hurting! 
Ruel Williams  
Caring and extremely professional environment. Dr and staff never made me feel rushed, explained everything in simple, easy to understand words. I definitely recommend A.O.S. to the most important people in my life and anyone else needing quality care!
Cora Jackson  
Dr. Arnold and his staff are top notch and took great care of me when I played football for the Razorbacks. His quality healthcare allowed me to play at my very best week in and week out. Thank you for being a part of my success and journey to the NFL.
Ryan Mallett, Former Razorback Quarterback
Went to see Dr Yakin about a hip revision. He was very informative, very personable, took time to listen!!! A big plus. Also referred me to someone who knew more about revisions which I really appreciated! It's a very hard surgery and he wants somebody that is more experienced in that area. So he's looking out for my well-being! Loved him!
Stephanie Farley  
When discussing A.O.S, the term professionals is a drastic understatement. Their process is short, to the point, and yields maximum results. - Evaluate- Operate- Elevate After undergoing their shoulder reconstruction process I can proudly say that I am back on the Track / Field working towards an intensity I've never reached before. HU...
Tyler Christman, Unattached PoleVaulter
This practice is fantastic, and uses the most advanced treatments. They were able to schedule me quickly and provided outstanding service. Dr. Hagen was extremely knowledgeable and provided an excellent solution to address my issue.
J S  
Dr. Yakin fixed my shoulder when others couldn't. I'd recommend him to anybody who needs an orthopedic surgeon!
Jon Ruston  
Everyone here at AOS treat you with kindness, respect and will go over and above if needed. They answer all your questions in a manner that you can understand.
LaJeana Pete Hester  
I could not be more pleased with the result that Dr. Chris Arnold achieved by doing rotator cuff surgery on my right shoulder. I knew I had a serious, painful issue in August of 2018 but put off the surgery until January 2019. By mid March 2019 I was playing golf. The first two weeks after surgery was uncomfortable but not painful, from then on ...
Phil Phillips  
Very organized. Not a lot of waiting around. Got me in very fast. Dr Yakin was very gentle with my knee. Had to drain fluid from my knee. Very little pain. I was genuinely surprised. Would recommend this clinic to everyone.
Ray Horton  
So thankful for Dr. Wagner and his caring staff. It's been hard watching my boy miss 8 weeks of baseball, but knowing he's healing properly with an excellent treatment plan makes it worth it.
Great Doctors and staff. No long wait time. Very friendly and knowledgeable. I am 48 years old. I had bone on bone with both knees. I had TKR on both knees done back in 2022 and a MUA and revision on right knee in 2022. A revision on left knee in 2023. I thought I would never walk again. Thanks to Dr. Arnold and Taylor Sites, PA, I can play with my grandkids again. Recommend x10
Billie Jean Morris  
I'm 59 and a half years old and I've had two total knee replacements within two years by Dr. Arnold. I would recommend him to anyone and to never put off your knee pain. I left the hospital relieved of pain on day one.
Bobby Daily  
No one ever wants to have to visit their orthopedic surgeon, but if you must, make sure they are the best. Dr Christopher Arnold has successfully restored me twice, knee and shoulder, and unfortunately it's looking like a third visit in the near future. I have the utmost confidence in his professional ability and he is thorough and kind.
Susan Callaway,  
Dr. Arnold, along with the Sports Medicine Staff at the University of Arkansas, did a great job keeping me on the field and took great care of me while playing for the Razorbacks. After getting injured while playing for the Buffalo Bills, I knew I could rely on Dr. Arnold to get me back to competing in the NFL.
Chris Gragg, Former Razorback Tight End
I really appreciated that the doctor listened to my moderately long winded list of symptoms and the battle I had gone through to get to seeing him. Hoping to find that they are able to find a solution to solve my issues. I have lots of life still to live.
Felicia Kimberling  
I've had both shoulders replaced with excellent results. Dr. Yakin and staff must have done an excellent job as I had quick recovery both times. Physician Specialities Hospital was very clean and organized and the staff was great. Thanks to you all.
Thomas Sandusky  
My experience with Dr. Yakin and all the staff at AOS, has been one of the most stress free during what could have been the opposite. Complete professionalism from everyone involved at every visit.
Kay Coley  
Dr. Arnold is the BEST! I will not have anybody else operate on my knees, shoulder, or hip!
Got me in very quickly. Everyone extremely professional and nice. Made sure my needs were met. Good listeners which is very important to me.
Regina Luper  
After enduring a season ending injury while playing for the Hogs, I knew it would be a tough road ahead to prepare for my future. Dr. Arnold and the Athletic Trainers at the University of Arkansas got me back on the field and competing in the NFL. Dr. Arnold played a big role in helping me reach my goals at the next level.
Robert Thomas, Former Razorback Defensive Tackle
Dr. Hagan is my Dr. hero!! It was easy to get an appointment with him, within a few days. Once I was there he figured out my medical problem & took care of it right away. His nurse was awesome as well.
Jo Price  
I became Dr. Sites' patient in September 2008. Since then he has provided excellent, expert care of my advanced osteoarthritis shoulder condition. He treats patients as individual persons, not a name on a file; answers all questions fully; sees patients at their appointment time, without waiting. His staff is knowledgeable, efficient and friendl...
J.G., High School Quarterback
They were very professional. And we didn’t have to wait very long. For check up. I recommend Advanced Orthopedic specialist to everyone who ask where I had my knee replacement performed.
Jimmy Robertson  
I had a complete knee reconstruction. I tore my ACL, PCL, MCL and both Meniscus. After one year I am finally returning to jumps and tumbling for cheerleading, and I couldn't be happier. It has been a long journey, and I wouldn't be where I am today without Dr. Arnold and his team. They're truly amazing.
