I would highly recommend Dr. Scott Smith. He has replaced both of my hip joints and I received excellent care from him. He takes time to explain the process and he makes sure that all questions and concerns are answered.

Dr. Smith was helpful in explaining my knee function and degeneration in a language I could fully understand. I was appreciative of his guidance through review of my x/rays, and his support and suggestions toward my goals of fitness and recovery.
