Bobby Smith, D.O.

Dr. Smith is a General Surgeon with Covenant Medical Group and practices at Covenant Hospital Plainview. In addition to performing all general surgery procedures, Dr. Smith also performs bariatric surgery in the form of the sleeve gastrectomy. This is a laproscopic, surgical weight-loss procedure in which the stomach is reduced, by surgical removal of a large portion of the organ. The result is a sleeve or tube like structure. Because the new stomach continues to function normally there are far fewer restrictions on the foods which patients can consume after surgery.

Dr. Smith and Covenant Hospital Plainview are excited to offer this weight loss option to patients in the surrounding communities.
