Drs. Sheffield Kent, Daniel Judkins Form Conway’s Baptist Health Comprehensive Spine and Pain Management Center

CONWAY, Ark. – It’s hard to find highly skilled doctors disciplined in both pain medicine and anesthesiology in Arkansas. Because specialists with these combined skills are sorely needed, Drs. Sheffield Kent and Daniel Judkins recently returned to their home state to set up practice.

The two are the founding physicians of the Baptist Health Comprehensive Spine and Pain Management Center in Conway.

Kent and Judkins met while in medical school and worked together during their anesthesiology residency at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. Both went on to become fellowship-trained in pain management: Judkins at Emory University in Atlanta and Kent at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

With more than 12 years of experience combined, Kent and Judkins have expertise in managing pain associated with sciatica, herniated discs, arthritis, fibromyalgia, and post-surgery. Their services include joint injections, nerve blocks, ketamine infusions, spinal cord stimulation, epidural steroid injection, radiofrequency rhizotomy, kyphoplasty, and many others.

The Baptist Health Comprehensive Spine and Pain Management Center are located at 650 United Drive, Suite 340, in the Conway Medical Park behind Baptist Health’s Conway hospital. The center is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
