I am so very gratefull to Dr Smith as everything went better than I could have ever expected. He and his team were so very kind, considerate and very responsive. This was my first surgery and I trust Dr Smith completely." Webmd Verified Patient "DR. Eric L. SMITH Review Dr. Eric L. Smith of NE Baptist Hospital was my surgeon for my 2nd total knee replacement. It’s been a year since my successful surgery.. I am so grateful to him, his office staff and the Baptist Hospital team. My first knee replacement in 2019 at BI was the worst medical experience of my life. I rate my second knee replacement success on these factors: Dr. Smith is a skilled surgeon. We met, I explained my fears, he took a lot of time and talked about how my surgery would go. I opted for the Conformast knee which is a custom knee molded to your leg. It made a HUGE difference in my successful recovery . I highly recommend it. It’s marketed towards athletes, but I notice a difference when I compare my knees. Pain Management - The opioid epidemic has forced docs to cut way back on pain meds. I believe the pendulum has swung too far in the current direction. That said, I was not denied the refills I needed for successful physical therapy. Physical Therapy - I would not consider knee replacement surgery unless you commit to P.T. My knees will never be like my young knees, I still force myself to do the exercises because they work. I recommend Dr. Smith." Webmd Verified Patient "Excellent"
