“Dr. Stacia Smith discussed my right knee and my crooked lower leg; I had extensive X-rays, and she settled on a partial knee replacement after consultations about my activities. My recovery went quite well and after 6 months I was doing well, and after a year it was wonderful. I can walk straight, faster than previously, and my left hip rarely hurts. I am very, very pleased with the results! Dr Smith also spends time going over x-rays and treatment.”

“The first time I went into the clinic, Dr. Smith didn’t waste time in addressing the issue of my hip needing to be replaced! She took the issue of me not being able to do the most basic of things; such as: going for walks with my dog, sitting, standing, or even being able to sleep without being in severe pain with complete understanding and didn’t waste time mooning over my age either (as I am 47 years old)! She made the surgery date that same appt and within less than 3 weeks, I was in for a new hip replacement. I made her a promise that it would NOT be a waste of her time either..I had my own goals and needs of what I was going to do when this happened. I would like to think that not only has she been very impressed by my quick recovery and ability to walk without aid of a cane or crutches, but also that I kept my promise to not waste this gift. I have highly recommended the clinic to many people who have, like myself, either been let down by other doctors and clinics who have not resolved or responded with the care many expect doctor’s to have when patients are in pain. Not everyone is “pain med seeking” either. As for myself, I am now down on the number of pain meds I take a day and still reducing them. It amazes me just how much this hip had caused other places in my body to ache with pain, and now that it’s been replaced, I can do more things that were unattainable for the past 10-12 years for me to do. The people at this clinic and Dr. Smith as well…THANK YOU!!”

“Dr. Smith replaced both of my knee joints in 2010 and has not lost her touch. Her assessment of the condition of my left hip and her skills in surgery plus the total surgical team and the follow-up care at Island Hospital was top-notch. It was three weeks ago tomorrow that I stood by my bed a mere four hours after arriving in my room following surgery. I have already nearly “graduated” from physical therapy and am back walking daily which was my routine prior to surgery.”

“Dr. Smith and her staff performed a total knee replacement for me. Although the experience of a knee replacement can hardly be called enjoyable, I did enjoy the care I received. Dr. Smith is an excellent straight-forward communicator. She listens well and concisely explains her thinking in answering my questions. I am confident in her knowledge and skill as an Orthopedic Surgeon. She and her staff have been readily available to address all of my concerns. I receive excellent care and believe that my continued recovery has been enhanced due to Dr. Smith and the staff at Skagit Northwest Orthopedics.”

“I am very pleased with the care I received @ NW Orthopedics. Am in the process of making decisions on knee replacement surgery and will be consulting Dr. Smith again.”

“I’ve twice been a patient of Dr. Stacia Smith—both times for hip replacements, six months apart. Having these procedures done around age 65 was likely one of the best decisions I’ve made. Dr. Smith came well recommended and I’ve been pleased to suggest the procedure and Dr. Smith to friends who might need to explore the option. Before having the hips replaced I participated in a focused physical therapy program that allowed me to recover from both operations in record time, according to my physical therapist.”

“Dr. Smith is my surgeon. In 2006 she was the one that found the break in my right knee and was able to heal it and it has not bothered me at all. Currently she is working with my left shoulder injury from a car accident. I am confident in her skills and I am very lucky and grateful that she is my doctor.”
