At Sierra Spine Institute, the sole mission is getting patients back to their lives as quickly as possible through personalized, high-quality care. Practice founder Tyler Smith, MD, is a board-certified and fellowship-trained physician who provides both nonsurgical and surgical treatment options in the Roseville, California, office.
Patient education is a top priority at Sierra Spine Institute. The team believes that informed patients make better choices, feel more confident, and enjoy better results, so they take the time to explore all treatment options with patients.
Treatments include both traditional approaches and the newest leading-edge pain management strategies. Nonsurgical approaches like platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections are available in the practice's state-of-the-art operating suite, as well as surgical approaches like sacroiliac (SI) joint fusion, disc replacement surgery, and other types of back and neck surgery.
The Sierra Spine Institute team is responsive, respectful, and supportive. They believe there’s no one-size-fits-all cure, so they use carefully-crafted individual approaches to ensure that every patient gets the best results.

Dr. Tyler Smith, MD, is a Fellowship-Trained and Board-Certified Orthopedic Spine Surgeon, Spine Surgery Specialist, and the Founder of Sierra Spine Institute. Dr. Smith takes pride in providing the people of Roseville, California, and surrounding communities with the highest quality surgical and conservative care.
Dr. Smith focuses his practice exclusively on evaluating and treating conditions of the spine in adults and adolescents. He is widely regarded as an innovative thought leader in the field of minimally invasive spine surgery, and has published extensively in peer reviewed literature. His leadership in the field of lateral lumbar surgery has led to many advanced techniques, including the development of prone lateral surgery. He has traveled the world teaching surgeons and lecturing on this groundbreaking technique. As a practiced Orthopedic Spine Surgeon, Spine Surgery Specialist, and health care professional, Dr. Smith feels he and his team have a clear obligation to provide patients with as much information about their care as possible.
“Informed patients simply make better decisions about treatment options and enjoy better outcomes,” he says.
Dr. Smith also has a healthy respect for surgery and believes it should be avoided (if possible). However, if your condition requires an operation, it should be done in a way that preserves uninvolved tissue as much as possible, otherwise known as minimally invasive.
Dr. Smith always takes a respectful and responsive approach. His sole mission is to alleviate your pain through personalized, high-quality care, and his goal is to get patients back to living their lives as quickly as possible.
