From knee scopes to com­plex hip revi­sions, my years of expe­ri­ence unique­ly pre­pare me to under­stand my patients’ con­cerns. Coun­sel­ing patients and their fam­i­lies on treat­ment options to ensure the best, least inva­sive treat­ment is my pri­or­i­ty. My train­ing at Mayo Clin­ic has put me at the fore­front of inno­v­a­tive tech­niques. I use 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.

"Will forever be grateful to Dr. Smith and his PA, Ryan. They provided me with the information I needed to decide on their recommendation of bi-lateral hip replacement.
