Qualifications and Experience
Awards and Publications
After being raised in a small community in the midwest, Dr. Smith attended Hendrix College, a liberal arts school where he majored in Chemistry. He completed medical school in 1992. He was elected to the National Honors Medical Society Alpha Omega Alpha, and soon thereafter began his Internship and Orthopedic Residency in Utah.
While his main focus is on patient care, he continues some academic pursuits. He works with commercial interests in the development of spinal implants, such as a cervical disc replacement as well as cervical and lumbar instrumentation with which spinal surgeons repair disrupted anatomy. He lectures intermittently, mostly locally, but a few times a year he is asked to speak at national sales meetings as well as national and international academic meetings attended by orthopedic surgeons and neurosurgeons specializing in the treatment of spinal disorders.
Verified Patient Reviews
Very professional and knowledgeable staff.
Great "bedside" manner. He takes the time to completely answer questions and discuss all options. Great office and staff, especially his PA Craig.
I was very impressed with his approach I had seen 3 other doctors they all said I needed extensive surgery , even though he suggested surgery as well but his care and concern with what works best for me and listing to what I was complaining about made me realize that he truley cares about his patients and he is not out there to perform costly surgeries! For a doctor in private practice he was a fresh breath of air after all ! Highly recommend him.
I would not trust anyone but Dr. Smith he is Fantastic
Dr Smith and Staff have been great. Referral to PT -- Best I've ever worked with. I'm confident they'll all help me get better.
