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.
