This content was provided by Dr. Knox "Board Certified since 1985 by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery. Fellow - American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons. Membership in the Arthroscopy Association of North America. Membership in the Arkansas Orthopaedic Society I have been greatly humbled and emotionally rewarded in my career as an orthopaedic surgeon. There are many conditions for which my ability to make an accurate diagnosis, perform a certain surgical procedure or assist a patient in receiving care in another setting have greatly enhanced a patient's quality of life. Patients place their trust in me, and I do my best to earn and honor that trust. I wanted to be a physician from 6 years of age, and I cannot imagine doing anything else. I love my career."
This content was provided by Dr. Knox "After examining my patient, I try to explain my diagnosis in an understandable manner, offering conservative treatments options, if available. No matter the recommendation, the decision about the type or degree of care is always the patient's. I never pressure my patient into making a decision she or he is uncomfortable with.
I share educational information with my patients and encourage them to seek further education. An educated patient will be more likely to participate in a way which aids in his or her recovery. "

To the extent that I sometimes fail, I express regret and take any negative feedback as a time to reflect on where I may have fallen short. I am all too human at times. I am lifted by the thousands of rewarding and satisfying encounters which my patients have reported to me through the years.
