    Dr. Simon Mears is a board certified orthopaedic surgeon at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) as well as a professor of orthopaedic surgery in the College of Medicine at UAMS. His special interests include total hip and knee replacement, hip fracture care, and geriatric orthopaedics.

    Dr. Mears earned a Medical degree and a Ph.D. degree in Neurobiology from the University of Pittsburgh. He completed his orthopaedic residency at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. He completed a fellowship in orthopaedic traumatology at the R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center at the University of Maryland as well as a second fellowship in hip and knee replacement at the Mayo Clinic. He has won the prestigious Jahnigen Award in geriatric medicine. Dr. Mears practiced at the Johns Hopkins University for ten years and served there as Chairman of orthopedic surgery at the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center.

    Dr. Mears specializes in hip and knee replacement including both primary and revision surgery. His research interests include the clinical outcomes of geriatric patients and the biomechanics of fixation in osteoporotic bone. He is currently vice president of the International Geriatric Fracture Society and Deputy editor for the Journal Geriatric Orthopaedic Surgery and Rehabilitation.
