He then completed his orthopaedic residency at The University of California, Irvine, where he served as chief resident in his final year. He then completed an orthopaedic and neurosurgical spine surgery fellowship at the Rothman Institute at the Thomas Jefferson University Hospital; widely regarded as one of the most sought after and prestigious spine fellowships in the country. His training there included complex surgery of the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine.

Dr. Smith is an assistant professor in the department of Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Southern California. During his two years at the University he was co-director of the USC Center For Spinal Surgery and was heavily involved in research and resident education.

He is a strong believer of educating patients and their families so that they fully understand their disease and all treatment options. His emphasis is always towards non-operative treatment, reserving surgery as the final option when conservative therapy fails. His goal is to provide our communities with high quality, compassionate, and affordable musculoskeletal care that is grounded in evidenced based medicine, the results of which will exceed expectations.
