Brian Smith, originally from Indiana, completed his undergraduate studies at Indiana University in Bloomington, where he received numerous academic awards. He then was accepted into the Indiana University School of Medicine, later graduating in the top two-percent of his class.

We seldom appreciate all we do with our hands. When they have problems or become injured, it can affect all aspects of our life. I take great pleasure in helping to get people back to doing the things they want to do. – Dr. Brian Smith
