Dr Patrick Smith has been my back and neck doctor for 4 years he performed cervical spine surgery on me 2 years ago , Dr Smith takes time to explain what your condition is and the treatment that is best suited for it. Unlike some surgeons he attempts to avoid operating on you and only does when its absolutely necessary. Great doctor and the three river staff is great.

Mine was not necessarily a failed surgery but an incomplete one. A last minute decision to not do 3 levels the morning of the surgery. Shortly after the surgery, I continued to report pain. Went through many doctors and various medicines to help what was thought to be a delayed recovery from surgery or fibromyalgia. Discontinued care with Dr. Smith and am now under the care of another surgeon. New surgeon will go in for a second surgery to fuse the third level, remove and replace old hardware.

Dr. Smith has recently performed a discectomy between my L4-L5 due to a severely herniated disc. I couldn't be happier with the decision I made to see him. He very much described in detail every part of the surgery, from the admission to the hospital to what to expect 5 years from now. He went above and beyond to make sure that everything went smoothly down to typing my blood before surgery, just in case. He's very easy to talk to and listens to and answers every question and concern I have had.
