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."

I am so happy with the relief he brought to my life. The pain caused by the herniated discs had gotten to the point that I didn't know how I could continue to live in such a way. He was professional at every step of the process and made me seek other, less invasive, solutions to my problem before...more

One of the few Dr's we've had who actually wants your opinion instead of telling you what your opinion is. He is very open minded and doesn't disappear when a procedure (surgery) is done. He stays with the case until the disired outcome is met or all that can be done to get there has been...more

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.
