Accidents Don’t Take a Vacation 2017-01-28T09:38:58+00:00
 UAMS provides treatment for injuries caused by accidents, including sprains and strains

While you’re out and about in planes, train and automobiles this summer, UAMS can help if you have any strains, sprains or accidents.

Did you know that ankle sprains are one of the most common reasons for an emergency room visit? The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons estimates that 25,000 people sprain an ankle in the U.S. every day, so that’s a lot of ice packs. 

At UAMS, we hope you’re not one of the statistics, but we’re here to help you and your family if an accident occurs. The emergency room in our new hospital has spacious private rooms for our patients, which is a welcome upgrade from many emergency rooms.

And if you need to see an orthopedic doctor, our caring and compassionate staff has the latest technology and equipment to get you back to your regular activities as quickly as possible. Our multidisciplinary staff includes doctors recognized by their peers as Best Doctors®, including the leader of our sports medicine program, who is trusted by the Arkansas Razorbacks football and UALR Trojans basketball teams.

UAMS provides a full range of medical services to keep you and your family happy and healthy. To schedule an appointment, please call 501-686-8000 or (if calling from outside the Little Rock area) 1-866-UAMS-DOC (1-866-826-7362). Or you can use our online appointment request service.
