How You Can Help

Jackson T. Stephens Spine & Neuroscience Institute

Now is the time . . . to end suffering and restore quality of life.

The tireless energy devoted to caring for those suffering from spinal and neurological disorders is only part of the ambitious mission being undertaken at the Jackson T. Stephens Spine & Neurosciences Institute.

T. Glenn Pait, M.D., F.A.C.S., F.A.A.N.S., Director, Jackson T. Stephens Spine & Neurosciences Institute

The Institute provides multi-disciplinary care to our patients, from diagnosis to treatment and recovery. Patient care involves both medical and surgical therapies. We treat a wide variety of spine and neurological conditions such as spinal tumors, stroke, brain metastases and spinal cord injuries.

Our Institute serves as a one-stop shop where spine specialists of all types, both medical and surgical, work together under one roof.

Our multidisciplinary team includes the most talented practitioners specializing in spine surgery, pain management, pharmacology and physical therapy, to name a few. Our goal is to provide an organized and coordinated approach to the diagnosis, treatment and functional restoration of patients with spine-related injuries and disease.

We want to decrease the use of surgical and drug therapies when other methods of treatment will obtain the same result. This will reduce cost of care, decrease length of treatments and provide for a quicker return to normal activities of daily living.

Why give now?

In order for the Jackson T. Stephens Spine & Neurosciences Institute to maintain and surpass the standard of excellence that has been established, the enduring support of our people and communities will be essential.

The Institute houses three self-sustaining training laboratories. These laboratories are used to train resident physicians from many specialties. In these laboratories, resident physicians hone their anatomy and surgical skills and develop and test alternative methods. Your support will help purchase additional equipment and maintain and improve existing equipment. As a result, your support will make a definite impact on the training of our resident physicians.

At the Institute, our patients are our first priority. Providing an unsurpassed level of care is our honor and privilege. Because we know of the strain and stress our patients and their families are under, we strive to do everything in our power to ease their burden and provide every comfort we can. It is our goal to provide a warm and friendly atmosphere for our patients.

With your kind support, we can offer compassion beyond care through our patient support fund. Gifts provided to this fund will go directly toward enhancing the patient experience and will make available a variety of services and basic needs items.

With well over 42,000 patient visits in more than seven specialty areas to the Institute last year, we have a great opportunity to touch those we serve at the most basic human level. The kindness conveyed by the most fundamental of necessities we provide is a comfort to our patients and their families.

By making your gift, you will be ensuring that the most compassionate service is extended to all, allowing us to comfort the spirit and mind, as well as the body.

I was quickly able to resume my normal activities . . .

“I cannot say enough positive things about my experience at the UAMS Spine Institute. The staff was professional and caring and the equipment was state-of-the-art. After one injection and a handful of physical therapy sessions, my back was pain free and I was quickly able to resume my normal activities like coaching baseball, playing with my grandchildren, golfing and skiing.”
