Had double knee replacement Oct 12,2016. I can't say enough about dr. Smith. He explained everything in detail and what to expect prior to surgery. Everything went exactly as he said. I would give 10 stars if possible. Highly recommend.

I'm sharing my experience because I've had very positive results with my knee replacement. Dr. Smith, his staff and the Limerick facility provided excellent care for me. Dr. Smith always has time to listen and answer your questions with thoughtful explanations.

Dr. Smith performed a hip replacement six months ago. I was really nervous, but Dr. Smith assured me everything would be fine. He was right. Everything went well and I am back to normal. He is a fantastic surgeon. His bedside manner is only exceeded by his skill.

The best ever !!
in Royersford, Pa |
Dr, Smith is fantastic- everything he told me in my initial consultation was exactly what transpired throughout my surgery as well as recovery and rehab. I had by all accounts a complicated double knee replacement- my legs are now perfectly straight and I am able to participate in all the activities and sports I had to forego until I had my knees surgically repaired. I would recommend Dr. Smith to anyone who is looking to have knee replacemen surgery- he and his staff are unbelievably accessible

After suffering for 7 yrs. with a bad knee I finally decided have it replaced. I only wish I had done it sooner. I had it done in May 2016 by Dr. Smith. I cannot say enough about Dr. Smith, his staff and the surgical hospital. The professionalism and attention I received was second to none. My end result was amazing and I am now pain free. Thank you Dr. Smith .

Dr. Smith was kind and caring. He did not rush me and explained my surgery and what to expect. His greatest objective seemed to be reliving my pain and getting me back to functioning normally. He made it very clear that I was to call if there were any problems or questions. His manner made the fear of surgery so much less. I could not have had a better doctor.
in Upper Chichester PA |
Dr Smith performed a total hip replacement of my right hip in June 2016. From the first appointment in May at the Rothman Institute, through the surgery to the follow up in August, Dr Smith was outstanding in all facets of the procedure. I highly recommend him to anyone with hip or knee problems that could lead to treatment or replacement.
in Limerick, PA |
Dr. Smith and his staff were so caring and compassionate during my visits and surgical procedure. They took the time to explain everything to me, the surgery as well as my options. I had both of my hips replaced and they made the entire experience a positive one. Within a few weeks of my surgery I felt like my old self, without pain!!
in Audubon, PA |
Explains exactly the options and the procedures.
in Boyertown, PA |
I chose Dr. Smith for my hip replacement. I really like him. He is very friendly, knowledgeable, and explained everything in a way that was easy to understand. I went through the surgery without any problems, and am doing very well. It has been 9 weeks, and I am feeling great and am back to swimming, walking, biking, etc. I liked that there was no physical therapy besides just walking. I also liked the Physicians Care Surgical Hospital. It was an good experience, and I'm glad I did it!

excellent experience...
in Hatfield, PA |
i was referred to Dr. Smith by a co-worker, for revision of my left hip. After the initial visit I immediately sceduled the surgery , and was not dissapionted with the result. The left hip is back to 100 %, and have just recently had my right hip revised as well, and again, am very happy with the result. The incision healed in an amazingly short ammount of time, and I am sure the hip will be back to normal in a few weeks. I would highly recommend Dr. Smith to anyone.

I've been Dr. Smith's patient since 2008 and I'm very happy with all the results I've gotten having done different procedures throughout the years. My major surgery was bilateral hip replacement that was done January of 2016 and I couldn't be more happier with the result than I am right now! Excellent job!
in Glenolden Pa |
He has been wonderful. I truly believe he cares about his patients and there well being

After my appointments with Dr.Smith for evaluations for a knee revision he gained my confidence that he could help me and regain range of motion in my left knee. His staff and assistants are always helpful and friendly. He takes the time to explain everything upfront and what to expect. I would definitely recommend him and Rothman Institute to family and friends!
