I've been a patient of Dr. Smith for 3 years. During that time he tried every kind of treatment short of total knee replacement to relieve arthritis pain in my knee. (injections, topical, gel lubricant) Although the treatments were helpful they were temporary. He has now recommended knee replacement and I am going to follow his advice. I have found Dr. Smith to have a kind and professional bedside manner.

Dr. Smith's professionalism is without question. He showed genuine interest in my knee problem and discussed several treatment alternatives. We agreed on the treatment path and went for what I consider to be the best path. My surgery (arthroscopic knee) was done on 8-25-2016 and I was able to walk the same day. As of today, 9-14-2016 I feel 99%. His staff and those at the surgical center were professional and very pleasant

For seven years after an accident in which I tore a miniscus past saving, Dr. Smith worked with me to keep my knee functional. Most surgeons would have recommended whole knee replacement much sooner. I appreciated his care through those years.When my knee would not support me, Dr. Smith went over all options. He and I set surgery date. He shared exactly what I would face and the recovery timeline. I am allergic to many medications. He selected an option that worked well for me.
