Dr. C. Lowry Barnes, M.D., Orthopedic Surgeon and Chairman of UAMS Department of Orthopedics states, “In my practice, it’s all about mobility, and what we can do to keep patients active, moving and continuing their normal activities”. Barnes, who specializes in hip and knee reconstruction says that at the end of the day, his goal with his patients is to get them back to doing what they want to do.
Dr. C. Lowry Barnes helped one patient in particular to restore his active quality of life, from a four year long run-in with chronic pain in his right knee. This patient is Terry Bradshaw; Pro Football Hall of Famer and former NFL quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers, with whom he won a total of four super bowl titles in only six years. Bradshaw is currently a TV analyst and co-host for Fox NFL Sunday, and is now a spokesman and advocate for the Microport Evolution MP Knee System for knee replacements.
Terry Bradshaw received the installation of this system in his leg in December of 2015, from University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) team led by Dr. Barnes, and has been more than pleased with the results. Bradshaw states his trust and total confidence in Dr. Barnes, attesting to a painless, swift and smooth recovery. Microport Evolution MP Knee System company officials state that it is designed to move the way a healthy knee moves while maximizing stability and alleviating pain.
Bradshaw is a living testimony to the empowerment that can come from knee replacement from with system. This empowerment through a successful recovery and post-recovery is possible, says Barnes, with the dual efforts of the doctors as well as the patients and the support system that they choose to build around them. Dr. C. Lowry Barnes and the team at UAMS come at the highest level of recommendation for Orthopedic procedures, receiving many praises from Terry Bradshaw and more, and we are happy to have him with us.
