National Park Medical Center recently welcomed Dr. Brandon Byrd to its medical staff and will be offering orthopedic services to patients throughout Hot Springs and the surrounding area.
Byrd comes to Hot Springs from the Jonesboro area, where he was in orthopedic practice for the past eight years, a news release said.
"Dr. Byrd is a great addition to our already very strong group of orthopedic surgeons," NPMC CEO Scott Smith said in the release. "Being in a community rich with outdoor activities, orthopedics is a key service line for our region's health care needs. The addition of Dr. Byrd helps to ensure that we are continuing to fulfill our mission of Making Communities Healthier."
Byrd is an Arkansas native and was "already quite familiar with his practice partners, having served in the Army Reserves with Dr. Michael Hubbard, and having attended both medical school and residency alongside Dr. Brent Lawrence. He practices the full scope of orthopedic medicine including surgical and nonsurgical treatments for joint pain and arthritis, fracture care and sports medicine," the release said.
Byrd received his undergraduate degree from Lyon College, then received his medical degree from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. He completed his residency at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center in Oklahoma City where he spent a year as chief resident.
