Dr. Smitherman did a scope on my knee yesterday and removed debris as well as repaired my meniscus. I also opted for a stem cell implant because I don't have a lot of cartilage left from a previous injury. He is truly amazing. I was excited before my procedure and post-op I'm feeling very optimistic. He's worth the wait if you can get in to see him. His personal staff is amazing. The front office staff needs a bit more help but once you interact with Dr. Smitherman's personal staff they make up for anyone else's short comings.

Bedside manner is outstanding. He explains what to expect before and after surgery. Very sincere and personable wish is lacking in the medical field sometimes. I would recommend Dr. Smitherman to everyone! !
