2017 - Dr. Gustavo Bello - Bariatric Surgeon

Gustavo Bello, M.D

Bariatric Surgeon

After I completed a sub-specialty in weight loss and minimally invasive surgery at Penn State Hershey Medical Center I then went to built and served as Medical Director of a Weight Loss Surgery Center in Western Pennsylvania for 3 years before relocating in Baltimore, MD in 2015. My practice is based completely at Greater Baltimore Medical Center (GBMC)

One of things I appreciate the most of my practice is the ability to be 100% dedicated to the field of weight loss surgery. Not having to share my time with different areas and procedures within the General Surgery spectrum allows me not just to be extremely efficient and proficient in what I do but also lets me be there and available on a consistent basis for my patients.

I strongly believe in team work and I am so proud and couldn't be any luckier to have such an awesome partner in Dr. Elizabeth Dovec, extremely talented and dedicated physician. We just not make each other better doctors but by teaming up, both mine and her patients know they will received high end and dedicated bariatric surgery care 24/7. This and many other reasons have helped us become the busiest bariatric surgeons in the area averaging around 400 cases each per year.

In our practice, making our patients feel comfortable, heard, reassured and part of the family is our priority. We strive for the best possible outcomes and everything starts with establishing a close and personal relationship with our patients. 

Away from the hospital, I enjoy spending time with my wife and three children. Cooking, sports and outdoor activities are always things I look forward to do when possible. 

Fluent in English and Spanish always comes very handy now a days with the ever growing spanish-speaking population.
