Michael Smith, MDSpecialty(s): Orthopaedic Surgery
This is a challenging time in our country for most physicians, given the ever-changing landscape of healthcare. In my opinion, however, the rewards of being a physician still certainly outweigh those challenges. The greatest reward for me is that, on a daily basis, I can make a positive difference in my patient's quality of life. I value the relationships I have with my patients and the trust they instill in me for their orthopedic care. That is what makes me want to be a physician. My philosophy on patient care is to always treat my patients like I would treat my own family and to always do what's right for my patients and their families. I chose to specialize in Orthopedic Surgery because of my interest in the structure and integrity of the human body. I particularly enjoy treating sports related injuries, repairing fractures, and performing joint reconstruction surgery. I am very excited about the continued growth and development of our medical community. My wife and I have lived and worked in this community for the past 6 years and have chosen to raise our family here. We, like many citizens of this county, have a great interest in the growth and prosperity of, not only the medical services provided here, but our community in general.
