Best orthopedic surgeon ever!!! Rebuilt my shoulder and it works perfectly. He is in high demand, but I would wait hours to see him...yes, he is that good. What a blessing to the profession.

Dr Hefley replaced my right hip in Oct 2016. My recovery was fast and mostly pain free. I waited in pain for 1 1/2 years because I was afraid of the surgery. Dr H was calming and did an excellent job. Wish I hadn't waited. Highly recommend him.

I was pleased with my knee surgery that was done by Dr. Hefley and his Physician Assistant. However, during my stay at Arkansas Surgical Hospital, I was not pleased at all with the food that was given to me.
