Peter Smith, M.D.

Name: Peter Smith, M.D.

Expertise: Orthopaedics

Location: Shriners Hospitals for Children — Chicago

“To know that children I have treated when they are very young, and I’ve seen them progress – to think that’s part of the result of our influence is very rewarding.”

Peter Smith, M.D., is an attending orthopaedic surgeon and director of the osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) clinic at Shriners Hospitals for Children — Chicago. He is also co-medical director of the hospital’s motion analysis center.

At the “Medics on the March” event earlier this year, Dr. Smith and other physicians from around the country logged 50 miles walking in Maryland and Virginia to raise awareness of OI.

The OI Foundation, for which Dr. Smith serves as a member of the medical advisory board, was started by families who received care at the Chicago Shriners Hospital.
