Dilendra H Weerasinghe, MD

General Surgery
Unlike many in his profession, Dilendra Weerasinghe, MD chose surgery as his specialty early on while he was still in high school. He wanted to cure patients and improve their health by surgically treating them, instead of working in a specialty that treated chronic illnesses without a cure. Dr. Weerasinghe was attracted to the definitive treatment that surgery can often provide. Over the years, he learned that even if surgery was not able to cure a patient, he could always provide help by providing comfort.

Dr. Weerasinghe believes in treating every patient with compassion, as if they were family. He believes his role as a surgeon is the best profession in the world because it allows him to not only help heal people, but also to bring them comfort and provide a cure for their suffering.

Outside of his work, he enjoys spending quality time with his children and lovely wife. Family is very important to Dr. Weerasinghe, so he makes it a priority for he and his family to share at least one meal a day together to stay connected. They also love traveling to different parts of the world to experience different cultures and enjoy doing volunteer work in Asia, including establishing free medical clinics and building houses for victims of the tsunami in 2005.

Dr. Weerasinghe is Board Certified in General Surgery and is the Medical Director of Bariatric Services. Experience and surgical volume are critical predictors of safety and success in bariatric and laparoscopic surgical care, and Dr. Weerasinghe's success in both is unparalleled. Dr. Weerasinghe pursued advanced training in robotic assisted surgery and is certified in both advanced GI/minimally invasive surgery and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery. As a member of the Royal College of Surgeons of Glasgow (MRCS) and American College of Surgeons (ACOS), he is committed to gaining qualifications, clinical skills, and research skills throughout his career. Dr. Weerasinghe and his team are dedicated to returning patients to a happier, healthier life.
