Dr. Dean Smith, MD

Orthopedic Surgeon at El Paso Spine Center

Meet Dr. Dean Smith, MD

During his almost two decades of spinal surgeries in the city of El Paso, Texas, Dr. Smith has performed thousands of spinal surgeries on the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine. His dedicated spine practice caring for a high volume of spine surgical cases allows him to maintain unparalleled skills including minimally invasive fusions, microscope assisted decompressions, and advanced motion preservation technologies.

Though he and his team perform the majority of all Scoliosis Surgery/Reconstructive Surgery done in this area including Southern Arizona, Southern New Mexico, West Texas and Northern Mexico, his major interest is in the area of micro-invasive surgery. He performs the least invasive spinal fusions available and is the only one performing these procedures in this region.

Dr. Smith is part of the group that makes up El Paso Spine Center. El Paso Spine Center offers the full spectrum of Spine Care solutions for patients suffering from painful conditions of the spine, including comprehensive diagnostic services, conservative treatment approaches, and the latest surgical options in the event that surgery is required. Our orthopaedic spine surgeons are Board Certified and Fellowship trained, and specialized in care of the spine.
