Knox Orthopaedics provides both inpatient and outpatient orthopaedic surgical services. An example of a common surgery performed is an ORIF (open reduction internal fixation) of a complex fracture requiring the broken bones to be realigned surgically and held in place with screws, pins, or plates. ORIFs are performed at the hospital.
Knox Orthopaedics uses the surgical facilities of Baxter Regional Medical Center in Mountain Home as well as the facilities of Mountain Home Surgery Center, an outpatient surgery center, for procedures that do not require admission to a hospital. Initial postoperative checkups are scheduled through the hospital’s recovery room if the procedure was performed at the hospital, and further checkups, including rehabilitation therapy, are scheduled through our office. All postoperative checkups following outpatient surgery are scheduled through our office.
