About Us

The board-certified, fellowship-trained physicians at Martin Orthopedics provide complete orthopedic care for students, adults, and athletes. The practice has offices in Little Rock, North Little Rock, Hot Springs Village, Benton, Cabot, and White Hall, Arkansas, where the orthopedic surgeons, certified physician assistants, and nurse practitioners pay exceptional attention to every patient’s needs.

The Martin Orthopedics team offers outstanding treatment and helpful patient education, as well as advanced surgical care. They treat a comprehensive range of musculoskeletal conditions, from arthritis, back and neck pain, and joint pain to common causes of hand pain like carpal tunnel syndrome and trigger finger. They specialize in sports medicine and treating injuries such as meniscus tears, fractures, and rotator cuff tears.

In addition to other non-surgical treatments like regenerative medicine, the Martin Orthopedics team excels in orthopedic surgery, including total knee replacement, hip replacement, and shoulder surgery. They work closely with physical therapists and refer patients to physical therapy. They also use minimally invasive arthroscopic techniques to diagnose and treat joint problems, saving patients time and avoiding the pain and lengthy recovery typical of traditional open surgery.

At Martin Orthopedics, every member of the team aims to help patients resume their daily activities and return to playing the sport they love without pain. To benefit from their expertise, call the nearest Martin Orthopedics office today or use the online booking tool to schedule a consultation.

Q & A With Clay Riley

Why did you choose to specialize in orthopedics? I have always enjoyed fixing things. I could look at something mechanical and it made sense to me. Orthopedics involves a lot of mechanical concepts and physics and this made it the natural fit for me...

Healthy Shoulder Habits To Practice

In my practice, I see a lot of patients with shoulder injuries. And, while many people think joint problems are limited to aggressive athletes and older adults, the fact is that almost everyone will experience some kind of shoulder issue in their lifetime.

How To Avoid A Sports Injury

All sports have a risk of injury. In general, the more contact in a sport, the greater the risk of a traumatic injury. However, most injuries in athletes are due to overuse.
