    North Louisiana Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine Clinic, Leader in Orthopaedic Care for over 60 years.

    Having served the Ark-La-Miss region since 1951, North Louisiana Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Clinic’s leadership, experience, and expertise in the orthopaedic field is now broadened to include an extended-hours urgent care clinic to its patients since August 17, 2015. For six months this extended-hours clinic has offered immediate access to board-certified orthopaedic surgeons or orthopaedic physician assistants and is open from 5pm-8pm (Monday-Thursday) and 8am-11am (Saturday) at our 1501 Louisville Avenue location in Monroe. 

    Since injuries such as sprains, strains and fractures often don’t always happen at convenient times. While, most sports game are held at night and if an injury were to occur you and your family now have the option of skipping the long wait at an emergency room or at a generalized urgent care clinic (where you would be referred to an orthopaedic surgeon). Instead, patients can now immediately receive an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan for an orthopaedic-related problem. 

    According to Dr. Daven Spires, one of our board-certified orthopaedic surgeons, “We want to provide to our patients the convenience of specialized orthopaedic care outside of normal business hours. Our goal is to save our patients significant time and expense by creating an alternative to emergency room and urgent care visits for acute orthopaedic problems.” However, because North Louisiana Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Clinic wants to keep its care focused on orthopaedics, patients coming in with general cold symptoms or those needing vaccinations or physicals will be referred to a traditional urgent care clinic.

    The North Louisiana Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Clinic's mission beginning in 1951 is to provide a high level of orthopaedic care and treatment to citizens of Northeast Louisiana and surrounding areas to enable them to reach an optimal level of comfort and functioning. By visiting our extended-hours clinic, patients will benefit from having on-site access to our state-of-the-art facility’s full spectrum of resources and support to include casting, splinting, and radiology. We believe that providing high-quality care is not only about the medical advice and treatment that we dispense, but more importantly about the relationships that we have with our patients.

    What makes the Orthopaedic Clinic so successful is the staff and the physicians broad range of specialties. Those specialties include hand and foot reconstruction, sports medicine, spine surgery along with standard hip and knee replacements. You will be greeted with a smile every time you walk through the door. In addition, each day the Clinic has an “on call” physician dedicated to the expedient treatment of patients having sustained an injury. The Clinic is continuously improving the ways to better service its patients. 

    "Over the years, we have progressed as medical techniques have advanced," said Dr. Myron Bailey. "We provide the same advanced services as major metropolitan areas offer, and we provide several convenient offices for our patients."

    Now in three locations, making at easily accessible to the entire northeast Louisiana region. The Orthopaedic Clinic of Monroe-West Monroe-Ruston mission began and remains to provide specialized state of the art medical services to the tri-state area.

    With state-of-the-art diagnostic treatment and surgical and rehabilitation services, North Louisiana Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Clinic is here for you. They have assembled an All-Star team of physicians & professional staff dedicated to restoring you to the state of health and well-being that you deserve. Twelve orthopaedic doctors, three sports medicine specialists, and one goal of getting you back in the game.

  • At North Louisiana Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Clinic, we endeavor to provide the highest level of orthopaedic care. There have been many advances in orthopaedic surgery over the last several years, and our surgeons are bringing these new technologies to Monroe. From patient specific instrumentation, to locked plating technology, to reverse total shoulders, we are focused on obtaining the best outcomes for our patients.

    Patient specific instrumentation (PSI) for total knee replacement is the utilization of the patient’s own anatomy (via an MRI or CT scan) to fabricate custom guides that have the optimum alignment built into them. One of the main benefits of PSI is less operating room time, which is due to the fact that several steps of a standard knee replacement are bypassed.

    Treating fractures in osteoporotic patients (very weak and thin bone) is a challenge. Locked plating technology was designed to tackle this tough problem. By placing threads in the screw holes, screws now lock into the plate, which significantly improves our ability to hold the fracture in place. These plates also come in specific anatomic shapes for treating fractures of the wrist, ankle, shoulder, elbow, and knee.

    When arthritis develops in the shoulder, it can be very debilitating. When this happens in a patient without a working rotator cuff, the problem is a difficult one to treat. The reverse total shoulder was designed specifically to address this issue. It actually changes the position of the ball and socket (thus the “reverse” moniker) to allow other muscles to move the shoulder in lieu of the rotator cuff. Initially it was intended for patients 75 years and older, but the indications are being expanded to include some fractures and salvage procedures.

    The practice of medicine is one of constant learning. We are excited about the many advances in orthopaedic surgery. Our ability to treat the injuries and joint issues of our patients has improved significantly with these new technologies.
