    Scott A. Bovard MD is originally from Colorado where he completed his undergraduate degree at Colorado State University. After a stint in the US Air Force which afforded him the opportunity to travel worldwide, he matriculated into medical school at Ross University School of Medicine. During medical school Dr. Bovard had his first opportunity to learn about weight loss surgery first hand from one of the forerunners of modern bariatric surgery, Dr. Merlin Ottman in Colorado. It was this experience that would set the course of his life. Dr. Bovard completed his residency in Baltimore at St. Agnes Hospital, a Johns Hopkins University affiliate hospital that was home to Maryland’s most successful and prolific bariatric program.

    Dr. Bovard has been in private practice since 2005 specializing in weight loss surgery.  In his first 2 years, he modernized a failing practice in Salisbury, MD bringing it into the 21st century by offering minimally invasive surgery and additional surgical options for patients. Dr. Bovard worked to restore public and medical community opinion of the safety and efficacy of weight loss surgery. At the end of his tenure in Salisbury his practice was the premier regional bariatric practice in the area that drew patients from 3 states.

    In 2008 Dr. Bovard was recruited by a local hospital to come to North Carolina to set up a private and independent practice to serve the populations of Wake, Franklin, Vance and Grandville counties.  He set up Bovard Bariatric Center and Triangle Weight Loss Surgery.  His practice dynamic quickly drew a following from patients who appreciated his personal approach and accessibility. Mainly through word of mouth by satisfied patients, Bovard Bariatric Center has been a stalwart in a saturated bariatric market. Competing with the likes of Duke, Rex Healthcare, WakeMed programs, Bovard Bariatric Center has enjoyed sustained growth and garnered the respect of the local medical community as a small practice with the reputation of providing the highest quality of care to patients.

    Dr. Bovard is Board Certified by the American Board of Surgeons, Fellow of the American College of Surgeons, Member of the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery and a member of the North Carolina Medical Society. He is presently pursuing another nationally recognized specialty board in medical weight loss.  After his recent attendance of advanced post-doctoral specialty training at Harvard School of Medicine, Dr. Bovard hopes to be one of only few bariatric surgeons in the country to achieve the status of Diplomat of the American Board of Obesity Medicine.  With this designation he will be offering the highest standards of both surgical as well as medical weight loss options.

    Dr. Bovard resides in Raleigh with his wife and two beautiful children. Outside of the office, he enjoys playing golf and traveling with family and friends.
