Stuart E. Smith, MD

Orthopaedic Surgeon, Joint Replacement Specialist


My name is Stuart Smith. I’ve been in practice 19 years, and have performed over 7,000 hip, knee and shoulder replacements. My primary expertise is in the field of joint replacement and arthritis surgery, while other areas of interest are shoulder surgery, minimally invasive surgery and partial joint replacement. I am a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon and graduated from Vanderbilt University School of Medicine as a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society.

I am married with three boys. As a family we enjoy the outdoors and like to go fishing, camping and skiing. I am also an avid runner and bicyclist.
