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.

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.

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.

 

Jimmy has been great! He is very positive and tries to do different things to help my recovery, not just ride the bike! He is an awesome PT guy!

Patti M.

 

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 working again. I can't thank them enough for what they have done!

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

 

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.

When discussing A.O.S, the term professionals is a drastic understatement. Their process is short, to the point, and yields maximum results.

Dr. Yakin fixed my shoulder when others couldn't. I'd recommend him to anybody who needs an orthopedic surgeon!

Jon ruston

 

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 the rehab I received was outstanding and I could not be more pleased. I would strongly recommend anyone that suffers with a painful, irritable shoulder having it repaired by Dr. Arnold. Advanced Orthopaedic Specialist, are truly Specialists.

Phil Phillips

 

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.

KERRI WOODWARD ASKEW

 

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

 

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'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

 

Dr. Arnold is the BEST! I will not have anybody else operate on my knees, shoulder, or hip!

LINDA ALLMENDINGER

 

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

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 friendly. I heartedly recommend him to my friends.

J.G.

High School Quarterback

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.

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). From the moment I checked into the beautifully decorated reception at AOS, Rogers through my aftercare with P.T. I received first class treatment. The pre-op area was quiet which made me feel at ease along with the great care of the nurses in that area. I am so grateful to Dr. Arnold for making me feel better. I am fortunate to have him as my Doctor and appreciate his care, patience with all my questions and support of my fears of surgery. He always takes the time to answer all my questions. I also very much appreciated a video update on the evening after the surgery from Dr. Arnold and explanation of how the surgery went along with a follow up telephone call. Advanced Orthopedic Specialists offer exceptional care and should I require future orthopedic services then this is where I shall go.
 

Lindsey Langley

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!
 

Samantha Morris

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. Growing up being an athlete and now having a son who loves to play sports with his mom, this was a curse. For the first time in 26 years I can move around and play sports without the constant fear of dislocation. The surgery was not my favorite however, the outcome was absolutely worth it. Thank you Dr. Arnold! Peace of mind is priceless!
 

Jake Canady

I had several knee dislocations and I was very blessed to have found Dr. Arnold, him and his team took incredible care of me. They were compassionate and supportive in physical therapy. Dr. Arnold and his team really helped me get back on my feet and back to life. I’m very grateful for those people and the help they provided. I definitely recommend them to anyone that needs help.

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. Both the medical clinic professional staff and the staff in the Physical Therapy Clinic are THE BEST. This is true for every encounter we have had in the clinic, hospital, and by phone.

We very much appreciate the kind professional service and respect staff members have shown us. The Physical Therapy Clinic staff are the finest anywhere. Carey at the Front Desk, the Physical Therapy assistants / interns and of course the Physical Therapists … they are top notch. They have that unique ability to blend hard PT work with a pleasant personality. The team works well together, show respect for the client and for each other. After one visit, Carey knows your name and calls it each time.

No doubt, I’ll return for another type of treatment in future. I will always choose Advanced Orthopaedic Specialists for my orthopaedic health needs.

I won't say it wasn’t once in a while a struggle, but I made such a quick recovery from my hip replacement surgery because of Dr. Yakin, nurses, staff and physical therapists at Advanced Orthopaedic Specialists.
     

A.K.

Dr. Sites, the word is spreading around Newton and Boone County that you and your staff are the best. In fact, the King of the hip and knees is now Dr. Terry Sites. It is my pleasure to thank you for your expertise and complete coordinated care in re-aligning my life.
        

C.C.

Dr. Sites, Glenda & Staff, I just wanted to tell you “thank you” for putting my fractured wrist back together again! Everybody was always cheerful and encouraging, kind and professional. It is good to see a smile when you’re not at your best. Thanks for all you did for me.
        

D.J.

Everyone took such good care of me before, during, and after my shoulder surgery. Dr. Sites, you are something else and gave me hope for an injury I didn’t think could be repaired. You are truly remarkable. Everyone there is always courteous and willing to help. Thanks again for everything.
       

J.R.

Dr. Sites – I can’t begin to tell you how thankful I am for you to be my doctor. Everyone who knows your name only has wonderful things to say about you. Just knowing how well you have taken care of my uncle has always made me feel at ease with the thought of you operating on me. As you know, I was a bit sad when I knew my body wasn’t going to heal itself and that I’d actually have to have surgery. But just knowing that you would be my surgeon made me feel very comfortable and confident in a full recovery. I was never even the least bit nervous about the operation because I knew I was in such good hands. I can’t truly comprehend how lucky I am to have you as my doctor. I hope you realize how wonderful and special you are – and how much of a positive impact you have on so many people's lives. Again, thank you so very much for everything you have done for me! (ACL cadaver graft)

As a former Razorback, keeping an active lifestyle is very important. After years of continued pain and discomfort Dr. Arnold was able to give me relief and more importantly my lifestyle back with a total knee replacement.
