Dr. Smedberg's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Smedberg "In high school I sustained a football injury that required the care of an orthopaedic surgeon. The surgeon provided me with excellent care and I have been fascinated by othropaedics ever since. I enjoy the field of orthopaedic because it allows me to help people of all ages recover from various injuries and conditions so thy can return to work,sports,and the everyday activities they enjoy. Dr. Smedberg like following college football and participating in all kinds of outdoor sports and activites, including hunting and fishing.

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Smedberg ""I enjoy talking to patients, educating them about their conditions and treatment options and hearing about their goals for recovery. Typically, I prefer non-operative treatment options and resort to surgical options only when hey are absolutely necessary and in the patient's best interests.

"Being a good listener allows me to diagnose a patient's problem more easily and develop an effective treatment plan based on their unique needs. I always try to put myself in my patient's shoes to better understand how an injury or condition personally affects them. Then we work together to achieve the best possible results.""
