in St Paul, MN |
Dr. Smith is very personable, caring and knowledgeable. I did end up needing surgery after exhausting other options, and he was an excellent surgeon. Everything was explained in detail, surgery went very well and my recovery was closely monitored and successful. I would recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Smith was highly recommended to me by my internist in 2012. Then, and since, he has been informative, careful, thorough, and superb. He suggested ways to try to avoid and postpone surgery back in 2012, but did honestly tell me where I was likely headed (fusion). I had the surgery about a month ago, after my condition continued to deteriorate (as he said it would). My post-op has been almost exactly what he said to expect and the surgery seems so far to be a huge success.

Very informative and competent surgeon. My family really appreciated his post op conversation and explanation. I appreciated his operative expertise. I felt at ease choosing to proceed with his recommended surgery and had an excellent outcome.
