    Weight Loss Surgery with Dr. Heath Smith

    My patients deserve a physician and surgeon that treats them with compassion and understanding, will listen to them and treat them with respect and dignity. -Dr. Smith.

    Dr. Smith chose the field of bariatric surgery because of the vast benefits of the surgery. He is passionate about weight loss surgery because it allows the patient to look and feel better, and treats a multitude of comorbidities including diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, and obstructive sleep apnea. It is rewarding to Dr. Smith when weight loss surgery patients are most likely completely off all medications that they needed before surgery.

    Dr. Smith is committed to caring and compassionate patient care. He is dedicated to patients and gives his time, even on Saturdays, for surgical consultations and support and education. He is committed to making sure that no patient gets left behind and that their needs are addressed and cared for. He is experienced in performing the Roux-en-Y (RNY) Gastric Bypass, Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy (VSG), LAP-BAND, and weight loss surgery revisions. He also offers the Orbera Intragastric Balloon which is a non-surgical procedure.
