Dr. J. Patrick Smith did a great job repairing my torn meniscus while I was in high school. One week after surgery I competed in a track meet and won my event. It’s been almost 10 years and I haven’t had any issues since. While playing football in college he was our team doctor and did a fantastic job.

Dr. J. Patrick Smith reconstructed our then 12 year old daughter’s knee after a soccer injury. He did a great job. He also had a very nice bedside manner. It’s now 2 years later and Claire’s knee is as good as new. We can’t say enough good things about the care we received from Dr. Smith, his team and Twin Cities Ortho.
