Dr Smith and his staff were excellent to deal with! Dr Smith is a great listener, and allows you to ask any questions you need to. I was terrified of having surgery on my neck, and he was so calm and understanding. His nurse Anne is amazing! On top of everything!! She follows through on every detail, and makes the whole process smooth. Both of them together, are a great team, and I am so happy with my surgery and my care. I would highly recommend Dr Michael Smith!

Dr. Smith saved me from a lifetime of pain. He gave me full range of motion, kept me informed and smiling. Even after 5 years he still remembered what I did for a living. I trusted him then and even more so now.

The Best Cervical Specialist in Minnesota

Dr. Smith is an outstanding physician. He is by far the best cervical spine specialist in the entire upper midwest. He performed a 5 level laminoplasty on my neck for cervical stenosis. Dr Smith is one of the only spine surgeons in the country who has performed more than 500 laminoplasties. I have had no complications and my recovery is going well. If you have a problem with your neck, go see Dr. Smith.

Five Stars

I went to Dr. Smith for a second opinion on some issues I was having with my neck and spine. He too recommended surgery but his bedside manner and overall personality made me switch from my first doctor to him. Dr. Smith and his team are top notch in my book and I would recommend him highly to anyone having cervical spine issues. He listens, he cares and he treats you like a human being!!!! I am healing beautifully thanks to Dr. Smith!
