As the state’s only academic orthopaedic program, we pursue excellence every day at The Orthopaedic and Spine Hospital on the UAMS campus in Little Rock, UAMS Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine locations in Northwest Arkansas, and our network of orthopaedic clinics in Little Rock, North Little Rock, and Conway.

While our physical presence is one way to measure our scale and reach, it’s inside these buildings — in every floor, unit, and room — where you clearly see the impact.

Where lives are improved. Where tomorrow’s leaders are trained. Where medicine is changed. And where we deliver on our promise to the people we care for, every day.

It’s why we continue to build dedicated spaces, expand capacity, and invest in the most advanced technologies — to improve the musculoskeletal health of those in our communities, our state, and others in the region, nation, and world.

We have always pushed the boundaries of what is possible — and we’re not stopping now.

As UAMS Orthopaedics approaches its 50th anniversary, one constant remains: it is our community of donors who power us into the future. We invite you to support our incredible program and help advance UAMS Orthopaedics for the century ahead.

Become a Monthly Donor

A little goes a long way with UAMS Orthopaedics’ monthly giving program.
You can conveniently support the department in exactly the way you want, and at an amount that fits your monthly budget. Donors who choose to make recurring gifts provide support for our programs, services, and research initiatives throughout the year. Your gift will be charged on the 15th of every month for as long as you would like, and you may change or cancel your recurring gift at any time. We’ll send you an annual statement for your tax purposes.

Honor Your Health Care Hero

It’s more than than saying thank you.
Doctors, nurses and other caregivers at UAMS Orthopaedics work tirelessly to ease your pain and improve your musculoskeletal health. One of the most meaningful ways patients and their loved ones can express their gratitude is by honoring the health care providers who have made a difference in their lives.  By donating to UAMS Orthopaedics, you can express your appreciation by paying tribute to your health care hero while offering more individuals the opportunity to experience quality and compassionate care at UAMS.

Tributes and Memorials 

Make a gift in honor or in memory of someone special.
Donating in honor of an important person or event helps the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery continue to offer excellent patient care, innovative research, and transformative education. There are many opportunities to recognize a friend, a family member, a colleague or a mentor on a birthday, anniversary or another special occasion.  You may also wish to give to UAMS Orthopaedics in honor or in memory of a loved one. Such a gift is a positive expression of appreciation, love and compassion. 

Matching Gifts

Would you like to double, or even triple, the impact of your gift to UAMS? Find out if your employer has a matching gift program. 
Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match or multiply charitable gifts their employees make to non-profit institutions such as UAMS.  These programs allow you to increase your support for UAMS at no additional cost to you, while making a greater difference in the lives of others. Request a matching gift form from your employer, and send it to UAMS Institutional Advancement, 4301 W. Markham St., #716, Little Rock, AR 72205.

Charitable Gift Planning

With a simple gift that costs nothing during your lifetime, you can have a major impact on countless lives.
