I recently had my second shoulder repaired by Dr. Powell. Both surgeries went well and I had no problems with recovery (except for the normal post op pain, etc.) The office staff is amazing too. They are all very friendly and helpful, and will take care of you. I must say that I think Dr. Powell and his staff are the very best of the best ! I told him at my last appointment that I will be coming back once I am ready for my 'bad' knee needs replacement. I wouldn't go anywhere else.

Just recently moved to Fayetteville from Dallas, TX. On March 28th I Was involved in an accident that caused tremendous injury to my left leg. Not knowing anyone in the new city to seek proper medical treatment was just as painful as my torn quadriceps tendons. Thank God to my colleagues at work I connected with Dr. Powell and his wonderful, kind and caring staff. Two and half weeks following the surgery, I am recovering beautifully. Dr. Powell's PT director, Shawn is highly knowledgeable and caring. I could not have had a better team to see me through this injury. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Dr. Powell and his staff are extremely knowledgeable and friendly. I managed to do a great deal of damage to my knee. Prior to my surgery, Dr. Powell thoroughly explained the procedure and what to expect with my recovery. The surgery went very well and the physical therapy I received with Miranda at Powell Physical Therapy was also tremendous. I highly recommend Dr. Powell and his team for knee surgery.

Great experience from the front desk lady greeting us with a smile and friendly conversation, to the friendly and helpful medical assistant, to the X-ray technician who made it fun with smiles and friendly conversation, to Dr. Powell who spent a lot of time getting to know us, educating us about my issue and offering his advice and help. He stayed with us until all our questions were answered. He even visited with us on the way out. Last but not least, the check out lady who was beyond friendly and welcoming. Thank you Dr. Powell for all your time and choosing an amazing staff. Our experience was beyond amazing.

I would highly recommend Dr Powell to anyone who has knee problems. He and his staff are very friendly. Dr Powell performed arthroscopic knee surgery to remove the torn meniscus and cleaned up the arthritis in my knee. I now can walk comfortably and without constantly being in pain.

I have had tow surgeries in the past year, both by Dr Powell. A knee that had a torn meniscus and had to have cartilage removed. My knee is doing very well. My shoulder had to have rotator cuff repaired, had biceps fraying form shoulder repaired and calcium deposits removed. Followed his suggested PT and very happy with how my shoulder has responded. I highly recommend Dr Mark Powell for shoulder and knee surgery.

Dr. Powell is an attentive listener. He is patient and thorough. Over the years I have gone to him for shoulder and knee problems and he has helped me alleviate pain and heal properly I particularly appreciate his office staff. They are friendly and helpful and the atmosphere within the office is congenial. Dr. Powell has a number of people on his staff who have worked for him for more than 20 years. Dr. Powell would always be my first choice in a doctor when I have knee and shoulder problems.

After "working through" shoulder pain I realized it wasn't going to fix itself. Scheduled with Dr.Powell and quickly got in to see him. He, and his team, worked magic to help me get back to living my life without pain.

Always get a second opinion… that’s how I found Dr. Powell. I had my ACL reconstructed the old school archaic way in the 90’s… then fast forward to 2022 I thought I could jump the creek. I jumped it lol- I didn’t fall or twist or anything but the hard landing caused swelling and pain and my knee was loose and unstable. I got an mri and the first surgeon wanted to do immediate surgery- even though my acl is fine- I have a torn meniscus but besides acute instability and acute pain I didn’t need surgery. I read the first surgeons reviews on Google and was terrified- then I found Dr. Powell- he has great reviews for a reason. He told me he absolutely would not do surgery on me; he explained he would never do surgery on me and if I needed one cause of chronic pain he’d send me to the specialist in St. Louis. I was not in chronic pain- I just had an acute injury- He sent me to PT and I ordered a sexy robo knee brace and seven weeks later my knee is fine it is 100%. I am so grateful! For a surgeon who makes his money doing surgery telling me heck no… he won’t do surgery on me- and the other dude wanting to do a crazy surgery right away I was in shock at the differing opinions but blessed to get that second opinion. Dr. Powell is moral, honest, trustworthy and that’s pretty amazing for a surgeon who makes his money from surgery telling me the opposite of the other surgeon dude- I hope I never have to see Dr. Powell again lol and I mean that with love, he’s clearly awesome and kind and honest, but I don’t plan to jump creeks anymore or play basketball or tennis. But if my family ever needs an orthopedic surgeon he is the first person I will call. Anyways I’m rambling, but I believe Dr. Powell is the most ethical surgeon in NWA- his reviews speak for themselves and he looks out for patients more than his pocketbook. Last thing- his whole staff is salt of the earth amazing! Thank you guys!

I had rotator cuff surgery in February 7th, 2022. All of the staff were extremely polite, compassionate and knowledgeable. Always on time for my appointment. Doctor Powell is friendly, kind and direct. I was back to work in 2 weeks, still in a sling and restricted on my duties. (manager and a lot of computer work) I followed all the guidelines given to me so my recovery would be smooth. I went to PT every week, did my exercises and was smart with my activities. I can't say enough good things about my experience. I am extremely grateful I went for a 2nd opinion and it was Dr. Powell and his team!

I am thankful to the Lord for how He used Dr. Mark Powell to clean out & repair my knee. He is a great doctor with a wonderful staff, as well. I am blessed to now be able to walk without pain. Physical therapy with Shawn Adams, (Powell Orthopedics PA) was a tremendous help for me after surgery. I am truly grateful for the care that was given to me through this experience.

I easily scheduled an appointment and the staff took over from there they scheduled my MRI appointment as well as my physical therapy and podiatrist visits. I was notified of future appointments and quickly got in to see Dr Powell and his staff. They helped me with braces and follow up visits prior to and following surgery. After surgery Dr Powell called to check on me personally and he took my phone calls when I had concerns or questions. I was notified by phone about scheduling changes due to weather and easily rescheduled. My surgery went well and Dr Powell's staff helped me through the ordeal and put me concerns to rest.

Dr. Powell and his staff are amazing. I have had a knee surgery and rotate cuff surgery. Everything from the first appointment through recovery was handled with care and professionalism. I have seen Dr. Powell for some minor happenings and have had the same great care from him and his team.
