Philosophy

 

Dr. Smith believes that communication among the patient, staff and physician is one of the most important aspects of his work. "It's important to listen to the patient and to explain what will happen before, during and after surgery so the patient and their family has faith in the implant and the surgeon," he says. "Joint replacement surgery can drastically improve a patient's overall well being and keep them active. But a successful outcome is more than just replacing a hip or knee. It's about teamwork among the patient, physician, staff and hospital."

 

Dr. Smith's practice focuses on the care of the hip and knee: customized partial and total joint replacements, complex total joint revisions, and peri-prosthetic fractures and conservative treatment options for pain management. Dr Smith uses the most advanced techniques in hip and knee surgery including the minimally invasive direct anterior approach hip replacement technique, computer assisted anatomic knee replacement and outpatient total joint replacements.
