Dr. Bryan L. Smith, MD

Dr. Bryan L. Smith, MD

General Surgery | Male | 63 years old

I've enjoyed working in the Venice community for over twenty years. We have an office with a small town warmth but have a cutting-edge approach. I enjoy the diversity of my practice. While I do a great deal of general and vascular surgery, I now spend a good deal of my time helping patients who need thoracic surgery. The majority of lung surgeries performed across the country are still full open surgeries. Robotic assisted surgery is relatively new and is performed by a minority of surgeons. Having the da Vinci Si Surgical System and a growing number of surgeons trained to use it puts us on surgery's leading edge. Robotic-assisted surgery has been particularly beneficial for patients requiring lung surgery. I love using this system.Read more
