Sidney L. Bailey, M.D.


Hip, Joint Replacement & Revision, Knee

As the most experienced total joint surgeon in the region, Dr. Sidney Bailey offers joint replacement and revision of the hip and knee, including minimally invasive hip replacement and minimally invasive knee replacement using computer-assisted and custom implant technology. He joined North
Louisiana Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Clinic in 1980, the same practice he received surgery from after an injury in college football, and the same practice his cousin, Dr. Myron Bailey, served at for over 45 years.

A native Louisianan, Dr. Bailey was raised in the farming town of Tallulah. His undergraduate work was completed at Louisiana Tech University in Ruston. After receiving his medical degree at Louisiana State University School of Medicine in New Orleans, Dr. Bailey completed his internship at Charity Hospital and his orthopaedic surgery residency at Tulane University. 

Dr. Bailey actively listens, communicates, and works to do what is right for his patients. He always seeks to decrease his patients’ pain and improve function and fulfillment in their lives. His enjoyment in life, outside of orthopaedics, comes from his family. Dr. Bailey also enjoys cooking and traditional archery.

“I love how Dr. Bailey takes the time to set and explain everything in plain old English; he has never acted like he has to be in a hurry, I feel very comfortable with him and can ask him anything, he is just all in all a great Dr. One I will always go to. Thanks, Dr. Bailey, for just being you.”
