Get to know Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. Marvin K. Smith, who serves patients in Florida.

As a sports medicine fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Smith cares for patients with conditions involving the knees, shoulders, hips, ankles and elbows. This includes athletes of all levels, from professionals to those who pursue sports for recreation.

Taking pride in establishing and maintaining strong patient-physician relationships, he practices at Memorial Orthopaedic Surgery & Sports Medicine Center, operating out of the offices in Hollywood and Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He is also Vice Chief of the Department of Orthopedic Surgery at Memorial Regional Hospital.

“Whether working with elite/professional or recreational athletes, the opportunity to facilitate a patient’s return to their previous level of activity is tremendously rewarding. The current advances in joint preservation forecast a promising future for active patients and I will continue to contribute to such efforts of innovation” expressed the doctor. 

Educated in the United States, Dr. Smith graduated with his medical degree from the University of Miami Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine in 2012. He then went on to perform his internship and residency in orthopedic surgery at Jackson Memorial Hospital, and his fellowship in sports medicine at the University of Virginia School of Medicine.

A member of the American Association of Orthopedic Surgeons, he is board-certified in orthopedic surgery by the American Board of Orthopedic Surgery (ABOS). The ABOS is an organization with the goal of establishing educational and professional standards for orthopedic residents and surgeons as well as evaluating the qualifications and competence of orthopedic surgeons.

As a South Florida native, Dr. Smith has a genuine passion for the patient population he serves. His time at the University of Miami Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine and membership in the Iron Arrow Honor Society has afforded him the opportunity to cultivate meaningful relationships within local communities. Moreover, his background and prior experiences have prepared him to address an array of patient needs.

Over the years, he has gained experience in common arthroscopic procedures including ACL reconstruction, meniscus repair, rotator cuff repair, shoulder instability (open and arthroscopic techniques), shoulder arthroplasty, and various upper and lower extremity ligament repair/reconstruction. Through advanced training, he has developed a special interest in more complex surgical solutions including, but not limited to, multiligamentous knee reconstruction, innovative patellofemoral instability correction, meniscus transplantation, cutting-edge cartilage restoration and joint preservation, and hip arthroscopy. Additionally, he has observed favorable patient outcomes with the use of biologics and ultrasound guided therapeutics and have thus incorporated them into his practice.

As a former NCAA Division-1 student athlete, Dr. Smith is able to relate to his patients in a unique way. Through personal experience, he gained a great appreciation for sports medicine orthopedics and ultimately developed a passion for helping athletes pursue their goals and live out their dreams. He finds it critical to take the time to understand each patient’s unique situation as well as their goals while remaining sensitive to the recovery timelines they often face.

In addition to caring for individual patients, Dr. Smith previously helped provide care for athletes across various sports at the University of Miami and University of Virginia, as well as the Miami Marlins Major League Baseball team. 

Currently, he is privileged to serve as a team physician and official sports medicine provider for Florida Memorial University, Florida National University, University of Ft. Lauderdale and House of Athlete.

Orthopedic surgery is the branch of surgery concerned with conditions involving the musculoskeletal system. Orthopedic surgeons use both surgical and non-surgical means to treat musculoskeletal trauma, spine diseases, sports injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumors, and congenital disorders.

Helping his patients’ lives in a positive and rewarding way, Dr. Smith attributes his success to his strong faith that motivates him and holds him to higher standards. He has published many peer-reviewed journals and book chapters.

On a more personal note, he speaks English and Spanish.
