Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Smith "As a Fellowship Trained Orthopedic Spine Surgeon, I believe we have a clear obligation to provide patients with as much information about their care as we can. Informed patients simply make better decisions about treatment options. I also have a healthy respect for surgery, and I am of the opinion that it should be avoided if possible. However, if your symptoms require surgery, it should be done in a way that preserves uninvolved structures as much as possible - i.e., minimally invasive."

Dr. Tyler Smith is an excellent surgeon. He performed two back surgeries on me this last summer which went very smoothly. He's easy to talk to, makes things easy to understand and really cares about his patients.
