When Johnelle Hunt slipped and fell in 2013, she fractured two vertebrae. She was rushed to a nearby hospital, and doctors there determined she needed more specialized care for her injury in order to prevent further damage, even the possibility of paralysis.
She chose the trauma center at UAMS. She was quickly evaluated by the trauma team and recommended for surgery to repair the damaged vertebrae. Neurosurgeon T. Glenn Pait performed the successful surgery, and she was soon able to return to all the activities she had done before the accident.
“UAMS is so special because it’s a teaching hospital. You have all these smart people taking care of you. You just couldn’t ask for better care.”Johnelle Hunt, Fayetteville, Ark.
