Dr. John David Terrell has joined Sparks Urology Group, which is located at 5500 Ellsworth Road in Fort Smith. A native of Murfreesboro, Ark., Terrell graduated with honors from medical school at University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. In 2011, he completed his urology residency in a chief resident role at University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center.
Terrell was inspired to become a physician when his cousin was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma, a type of childhood bone cancer. Though his cousin eventually lost his battle with the cancer, Terrell wanted to become a physician to help people, like his cousin, who suffered from serious medical conditions.
Terrell works in pediatrics and adult urology and his work includes kidney and prostate cancer, surgical removal of the kidney, treatment of kidney stones, treatment for erectile dysfunction, penile implants, and prostate enlargement. He is also trained in da Vinci surgical procedures and plans to do prosthesis and slings in his practice. Terrell previously worked with Arkansas Urology, P.A. in Little Rock. He and his wife Andrea were born and raised in Arkansas. The couple has an 18-month-old son.
