I have had two surgeries with Dr Smith . Everyone on his team is special. I'm 70 and have seen a fair number of doctors in my life and have ever had the kind of confidence in anyone that I do with Dr.Smith . It makes a difficult situation easier when you can count on the advice that he and his staff give you. Simply the BEST.

I wish I could say my experience with Dr. Smith was successful, but my spinal DBL fusion was not successful. I have had problems with my legs ever since. I am having a revision done in two days, and I am scared. I remember waking up after the surgery he did on my back, and the extreme pain has not gone away. There is damage at L-4, L-5 and S-1. The biggest damage is L-4. I had no leg pain before the surgery, but have lived in pain ever since. I live on ice for my back and legs 24/7.
