At UAMS our goal is to provide the best care for every patient every day. Our patients say it best, and their stories are really the story of UAMS. All the formal awards and accolades just can’t tell the UAMS story better than the words of our patients.

Joannie Cayce was able to get her life back after undergoing hip resurfacing surgery. She recommends UAMS to anyone else needing hip surgery: “When the pain in my hip became unbearable, I went to the experts at UAMS. Because I was younger than most people needing a hip replacement, Dr. Evans recommended hip resurfacing as an alternative. It was the first surgery of its kind in Arkansas and worked like a charm. Now I’m back to my charitable works like donating quilts and other items to the needy.”
