KIRK S. SMITH, D.O.

I am a board-certified anesthesiologist that has been working with Dr. Minoli since completing my anesthesia residency training from the Univ. of Chicago in 2008. Although I especially like being involved in the anesthetic management of plastic surgery patients, I also provide general anesthesia services for a variety of procedures throughout Las Vegas community.
Since moving to Nevada, I have gotten married and have started a family. I enjoy raising my beautiful twin daughters with my wonderful wife Emily. I also enjoy travelling, working on home improvement projects, and I am always looking for a good restaurant recommendation.
