Dr. Scott Smith is the best around!!! I could barely walk and with a distinct limp due to advanced osteoarthritis of my right hip, creating a 2 inch difference in my R/L leg. My anterior approach total hip replacement surgery was 1 week ago, and I am completely pain free and standing with both feet on the floor. If I knew this was possible, I would have done it years ago. Dr. Smith was confident that I would have a good result, and I did! Great office staff too! Thanks Dr. Smith, and Judy!

Dr. Smith is great! I felt I was in experienced hands and my hip replacement surgery was completely successful. I went from chronic pain and no quality of life to bustling around with energy and vigor within a few weeks of surgery. His expertise and kind and knowledgable approach will support you through this major, but very worthwhile surgery. Do not wait if you need a replacement. You will be well taken care of by Dr. Smith, Judy, and the other folks in the office.

My husband recently had surgery for a torn quadriceps tendon. Dr. Smith and his nurse, Judy, have wonderful bedside manner. They are always very pleasant and take the time to answer all of our questions. Dr. Smith was very thorough in explaining what he was going to do in the surgery and what to expect afterwards. It is apparent that he is very skilled, loves what he does, and cares about his patients. If you need any orthopedic surgery I would highly recommend Dr. Scott Smith.
