Dr. Torrance Walker, an orthopaedic surgeon at Pine Bluff, recently completed a fellowship in adult reconstructive surgery at the Campbell Clinic in Memphis and has written two chapters for textbooks.

Walker, a surgeon at Jefferson Regional Medical Center, is among only a few fellowship-trained joint reconstruction surgeons in Arkansas, a spokesman said.

The Campbell Clinic, which is associated with the University of Tennessee, is recognized as a world leader in orthopaedics.

Walker has also written two chapters on joint replacement. One of the textbooks, “The Knee: Reconstruction, Replacement and Revision,” was scheduled for publication in October.

He is also a contributing author for “Seminars in Arthroplasty.” Walker detailed the surgical procedure for a partial knee replacement in “Patellofemoral Arthroplasty: The Other Unicompartmental Knee Replacement,” an instructional course lecture published in September in the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery.

A native of Pine Bluff, Walker received his undergraduate degree from the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff, and his medical degree from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. He is in practice at Walker Orthopaeadics in Pine Bluff.
