I no longer have any leg pain

On Oct. 4, 2021, had lower spine surgery performed by Dr. Gannon Randolph and his surgical team. The entire procedure, from admitting, pre-op, surgery, and post-op was done with the greatest care, compassion, and professionalism. The results were exactly as predicted and I no longer have any leg pain. I had a total knee replacement with Dr. Handby in 2017 with excellent results, my sincere thanks to all involved and would certainly recommend Ozark Orthopaedic to anyone needing such services.

NO PAIN Anymore

Dr. Benefield,

Had a joint replacement on my thumb- so glad I did-when your hand hurts it is no fun and when he said he would do the surgery I was so happy. NO PAIN anymore-some stiffness from the recovery but working on that! Dr. Benefield and his whole staff were so easy to work with, The staff at the Precision hospital were also very friendly and took very good care of me.

Have you ever had a doctor thank you?

Several years ago when my carpal tunnel got bad enough to require surgery, I saw Dr. Bennafield. He did all the routine preps and scheduled my surgery. As he was leaving the exam room, he turned around and thanked me for choosing him to be my doctor and for trusting him to be my surgeon.

Since then he's seen me for my shoulder and has been so skilled at hitting the right spot with steroid shots.

I'd also like to commend Dr. McLeod, whose specialty is knees. he also is an expert at steroid shots and also avoids surgery unless that's the last resort. When I need surgery on my knee, I'll know I'm in good hands with him and all the experts at Ozark Orthopaedics.

I am not only thankful, but grateful to be in Northwest Arkansas, in Fayetteville and an employee of Washington Regional.

Good morning,

In the midst of the pandemic, I wanted to share some good news and express my appreciation for the world class surgeons we have on staff at Washington Regional.

Dr. Ratcliff, you are aware that my 85 year old mother, Alice Schaller, was originally scheduled to have hip replacement in April but due to a situation with her primary, it was cancelled prior to shutting down all elective procedures. I made a change in her primary care and rescheduled her for June, gambling that Covid-19 situation would be under control.

Dr. Hanby performed my Mom's right total hip replacement without complications on June 15th. She spent the week in the hospital and was cared for flawlessly. Keith managed to check on her personally a couple of times and take her a few things she needed since I was not able to visit.

While all of this seems pretty routine, I want to also provide some background on a vascular condition my mother was born with and is the oldest person we know of that has the rare condition. She has Klippel Trenaunay Syndrome, a rare congenital vascular disorder. The affected limb is typically longer, larger, warmer than usual as well as softer bones. The affected limb/part of body typically has port wine stains, varicose veins, malformed veins/blood vessels. There is no cure and treatment is essentially non-existent. She has worn a custom compression leotard for the past nearly 50 years to minimize extreme edema and pain. She can bleed and/or clot at the same time which of course causes extreme risk for any surgery. My Mother's entire right side from her toes to her waist are affected. This was anything but a routine procedure.

When we met with Dr. Hanby back in February, he indicated Mom was a candidate for hip replacement because her hip was in such bad shape. My only comment to Dr. Hanby was that IF he was comfortable with performing the procedure, we were 100% confident in his ability. I know his reputation as well as first hand, in performing Keith's knee replacement that Dr. Hanby is not only qualified, competent and capable, but is the ONLY surgeon I would trust to perform the procedure on my mother.

Just prior to the surgery, my mother never expressed this to me, but did later to Keith - that she did not expect to wake up from surgery. She knew she had no options left if she wanted to have any chance at a better quality of life. Over the past two years, Mom had gone from someone extremely active and energetic to using a regularly, to a walker and ultimately to wheelchair for most appointments outside the home. She was barely able to navigate stairs, her gait was extremely unsteady and was essentially bedridden at home.

We hoped for a return to a better quality of life, with use of a cane. The last 6 weeks have been nothing short than a miracle as she is now back to using a cane and can navigate stairs quite well. A side note - Mom's right leg is longer and larger and thus her knees never "matched up." Dr. Hanby mentioned some pulling or adjusting he did (I will clarify that next week when we go for her post-op appt), BUT he knees now match up! Mom is amazed and overjoyed!

Four years ago when Keith said he had a job offer in Fayetteville, Arkansas, I can tell you honestly I was not excited. However, in the past four years, we have met some of the best people we have ever known and have experienced nothing less than world class medical care for our entire family. I am not only thankful, but grateful to be in Northwest Arkansas, in Fayetteville and an employee of Washington Regional.

Have a great afternoon!

Thank You for Your Excellent Care

I wanted to personally thank you for your excellent care. As you remember, I had lived with chronic pain for a very long time. The physical therapists have helped me immensely. Katie Eastman was very attentive and compassionate. She has provided me with instructions for that exercises that I can continue at home. She was very intuitive. When something was difficult for me she substituted something else that was equally appropriate. I am sleeping much better without the constant pain. The other employees were very gracious and helpful too, you should be very proud of them!
