Dr. Mark “BJ” Bailey Jr., an orthopedic surgeon at Saline Memorial Hospital in Benton, is one of few doctors in Arkansas who is currently performing a procedure that replaces the meniscus in a person’s knee. Bailey did such a surgery on an 18-year-old girl late in 2013. The patient, who played basketball, had injured her meniscus after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in both her left and right knees.
