      Dr. Smith's Care Philosophy

      My mission as a neurosurgeon is to relieve pain and human suffering. To this end, I will do everything possible to accurately diagnose your problem and educate you about appropriate treatment options. My goal is to find the least invasive treatment that has the highest likelihood of solving your problem. Sometimes this involves surgery. If you place your trust in me as your surgeon, I must be worthy of that honor. While no one can guarantee surgical outcomes, I promise to do everything within my power to ensure that your surgery is carried out with perfection.
