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.

UAMS patient Mark Pryor, a U.S. Senator and cancer survivor, recommends the Orthopedic Oncology Clinic at UAMS.

“I am living proof that cancer can be cured.”

“In 1995 I developed a rare and often fatal form of cancer called sarcoma. My doctor sent me to the Cancer Institute at UAMS because they had the only fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon in Arkansas who specialized in my cancer. But it was a team effort, however, that saved my life. UAMS not only took care of my medical and emotional needs during treatment, but the needs of my family as well. Cancer is often harder on the family than the patient. UAMS is an Arkansas treasure.”
