Orthopedics is the branch of medicine dealing with the medical and surgical care of patients with disorders of the musculoskeletal system. If you are suffering from a musculoskeletal disorder, it is important to choose the right orthopedic surgeon.
The physicians at Arkansas Orthopedics have impeccable credentials and over sixty years of combined medical service. They are all board certified by the prestigious American Board of Orthopedic Surgery and members of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons. They are recognized as experts in their field.
Most importantly, the surgeons at Arkansas Orthopedics understand that their patients need a surgeon who is not only skilled but takes time to listen. It is important to us that you and your family understand the problem and, together, we discuss the solution. We have carefully selected very talented surgeons and staff who have dedicated themselves to serving our patients by offering care that is thorough, personal, efficient, and convenient.

We are proud to be associated with the University of Arkansas Medical School in the orthopedic instruction of the family practice resident physicians and the Arkansas State University radiology student training program.
Arkansas Orthopedics in Jonesboro, Arkansas was established in 1984. The founding physician, John F. Ball, M.D., originally from Iowa, completed his orthopedic surgery training at the University of Oklahoma in Oklahoma City. While visiting Jonesboro, Dr. Ball noted the strong sense of community and it's commitment to providing it's citizens the best of medical care and felt this agreed with his personal practice philosophy. Dr. Ball's commitment to service, patient care and state of the art practice provided the foundation for a practice that would rapidly expand.
In 1988, John T. Woloszyn, M.D. joined the practice. Originally from New York State, Dr. Woloszyn trained in Chicago and Detroit. With the partnership of Drs. Ball and Woloszyn, the practice continued to flourish, based on their unwavering commitment to quality care. To better meet the needs of the patients, Arkansas Orthopedics relocated to a new facility located at 1007 East Matthews.
Continuing in their commitment to provide the community with the best of care, Claiborne L. Moseley, II, M.D., originally from South Carolina, was invited to join Arkansas Orthopedics in 1992. Dr. Moseley moved his wife and family to a community that they found to be family centered and rapidly growing. Dr. Moseley and his wife embraced the city of Jonesboro and became very active in the community.
By 1996, it became very evident that the community would benefit from the addition of another orthopedic surgeon to meet the demands of this growing practice. In 1997, Thomas E. Day, M.D., a very talented orthopedic surgeon, originally from Pine Bluff, Arkansas, joined Arkansas Orthopedics after completing his medical school and orthopedic residency at the prominent Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. Dr. Day's commitment to care is demonstrated through his involvement in the medical community and his position as president of the board at Surgical Hospital of Jonesboro.
