Biography

An internationally respected surgeon with ‘an undivided desire to help people’

Dr. Guilherme Campos’ life’s work is dedicated to helping people overcome esophageal and gastric diseases and clinically severe obesity. In practice since 1999 and globally recognized for his expertise in the field, Dr. Campos regularly performs advanced laparoscopic and endoscopic surgeries to treat upper gastrointestinal diseases, including gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and its complications; esophageal and paraesophageal hernias; esophageal achalasia; gastric and duodenal diseases; and gallbladder, common bile duct and splenic diseases. He has expertise in all minimally invasive bariatric and metabolic procedures, including revisions of previous failed procedures.

“I have long had a fascination with the ability to cure gastrointestinal conditions, and I enjoy the undertaking of caring for patients who are suffering from it,” says Dr. Campos. “My goal when treating all of my patients is that they achieve improved health and better quality of life. They should be comforted knowing that I have offered them nothing but the best of my knowledge and abilities. I have an undivided desire to help people in need.”

A native of Brazil, Dr. Campos has seen his field evolve over the years as new technologies and procedures are made available. The introduction of minimally invasive therapies and improved diagnostic techniques are now a regular part of the surgeon’s workload — although he doesn’t do it all on his own, providing care through a multidisciplinary group of specialists and staff. As chair of the VCU Health Division of Bariatric and Gastrointestinal Surgery, he oversees a team that has become a Center of Excellence (meeting a high standard for quality and the cost of care) for all major payers in Virginia, and is certified by the American College of Surgeons as a Level 1 Bariatric Surgery Center.

“As a team, we have a deep understanding of how to manage foregut diseases and obesity,” Dr. Campos says. “To successfully perform our work it does take a village, and together we help our patients go through investigation of their condition and gain the necessary knowledge to be successful in the long term.”

His research interests focus on treatment outcomes after minimally invasive and endoscopic procedures for obesity, esophageal and gastric diseases. He has also studied the changes in glucose-regulatory mechanisms and fat-mass loss after bariatric surgery. He has authored or co-authored more than 120 peer-reviewed articles and chapters in books, is the associate editor for the medical journal Surgery for Obesity and Related Disorders (SOARD) ,and a member of the editorial board of the journal Obesity Surgery. He has performed live surgery demonstrations in numerous national and international meetings, and has presented his work at more than 170 national and international conferences.

Outside of his specialty, Dr. Campos is an avid runner, swimmer – and enjoys a properly done steak.
