Dr Smythies is an exceptional Dr and surgeon. He did fusion surgery on my cervical spine a number of years ago and I will be trying to make an appt. to have more of the same done. I live in Georgia and will be pleased to come to Seattle to have him do the surgery. I have had a number of surgeons tell me over the year what a beautiful job he did in fixing my neck. 5 stars and more from this happy patient.
