Welcome to Dougherty Orthopedics

Dougherty Orthopedics & Sports Medicine is the best and most advanced practice in Northwest Arkansas for minimally invasive orthopedic procedures and sports injury repair and rehabilitation. Our mission is to safely and quickly return you to the top of your game.
Dr. Chris Dougherty is among the nation’s most innovative orthopedic surgeons and one of Northwest Arkansas' top orthopedic surgeons, with fellowship training in arthroscopy and sports medicine. He and his professional staff provide an accommodating treatment environment for patients of all ages, combined with the very latest orthopedic surgery procedures and techniques. Dr. Dougherty is the team physician for the Northwest Arkansas Naturals, a AA affiliate of the Kansas City Royals.
The First and Only Sports Medicine Fellowship Program In Arkansas
In 2010, Dr. Dougherty completed the two-year approval process to start Arkansas’ first and only sports medicine fellowship program, which offers one year of specialty training in sports medicine. Dr. Tim Howard is currently studying under Dr. Dougherty and is the second fellow in the program.
During the fellowship, Dr. Howard will receive intensive sub-specialty training from Dr. Dougherty. Once the fellowship is complete, any physician leaving the program will have the skills and knowledge necessary to practice within the sports medicine field without the supervision of another physician. The program is the first of its kind ever to be launched in the state of Arkansas. For more information on the fellowship program and Dr. Howard, click here.
