Dr Dean Smith performed my spine procedure, which included stem-cell injection and four screws, more than two years ago. Other than a few aches and pains caused by myself, my back is healthy today and I feel great. I highly recommend anyone with back problems to see Dr Smith.

I gave a five star on everything. I believe he is that good. I especially like the fact that before the operation he explains everything that he will do and how it will affect you. I couldn't be more satisfied.

My husband recently had complicated and difficult back surgery. Dr. Smith provided outstanding and excellent care to him while giving me all the support a spouse would ever hope to receive. His manner towards me and my husband was gracious, kind and considerate. The surgery was a great success and the level of attention my husband received was outstanding. Dr. Smith is a very fine surgeon and a great healer!
