Dr. Smart operated on my shoulder to repair the damage done when I dislocated it. He took great care in explaining my injuries and options. He is very caring and easy to talk with. Post surgery experience has been the same. He listens to me and addresses any concerns. Recovery is going well because of Dr. Smart's excellent care.

Dr. Smart previously performed shoulder surgery on my wife. That surgery was highly successful. He was also recommended to me by my personal physician and independently by another non-ortho specialist. Those recommendations were proven to be accurate. i had a complete shoulder replacement. After surgery I was immediately pain free, and within a week's time I had regained some use of the shoulder and arm. I was religious with PT for 12 weeks. After 12 weeks I was hitting golf balls.
