Florida Hospital Tampa Expands Surgical Weight Loss Solutions with the Introduction of Bariatric and Metabolic Institute
Date:10/26/2018

Florida Hospital Tampa is now home to the newly-named Florida Hospital Tampa Bariatric & Metabolic Institute (BMI). Michel Murr, MD and John Paul Gonzalvo, DO, join John Dietrick, MD to provide exceptional, whole-person care through a comprehensive, patient-centered approach to clinical weight loss and management at the new practice. This newly formed practice creates the most experienced bariatric practice in the Tampa Bay area.

The newly-formed practice specializes in adult weight loss surgery, including the gastric bypass, the sleeve gastrectomy, and revisional bariatric surgery. They also provide innovative surgery using advanced laparoscopic techniques and the da Vinci Robot system to improve patient outcomes. The practice will add adolescent weight loss surgery and a medical weight management program in the coming months.

Obesity and its related health risks have long been listed among the top of local, state and national chronic disease and behavioral risk factors.

“Obesity is linked to so many life-threatening conditions and diagnoses, such as high blood pressure, heart disease and failure, gall bladder disease, osteoarthritis, depression and more,” says Dr. John Dietrick. “I’m confident that our new team is positioned to leverage the best clinical and surgical expertise, technology, and resources to weight loss solutions that help put our patients on track to a healthier life.”

The practice will also house a highly specialized team of psychologists, dieticians, advanced practitioners, and fellows for expert patient care. Additionally, BMI patients will have access to a large network of care at Florida Hospital Tampa, including Pepin Heart Institute, Orthopedic Care Center, Sleep Center, Digestive Health Institute, and the Diabetes Education Center.
