Dr. Wayne Westmoreland

    Dr. Westmoreland has practiced general surgery in Murfreesboro for over 30 years and added bariatric surgery to his practice in 2005. He performed his first laparoscopic gastric bypass in January 2005 adding the Lap-Band in 2006 and then performed his first sleeve gastrectomy in 2007. He is also trained on the Davinci robot and has utilized the robot for gastric bypass and colon resections. Dr. Westmoreland began the bariatric program at Middle Tennessee Medical Center, now St. Thomas Rutherford which was designated as a Center of Excellence by the ASMBS. The Center at St. Thomas Rutherford Hospital is now a certified MBSQIP Center which is the highest level of distinction for bariatric centers.

    In addition to his extensive experience with the sleeve gastrectomy having performed the procedure since 2007, Dr. Westmoreland offers an affordable self-pay price for those patients in need of bariatric surgery who have no insurance coverage.

    Dr. Westmoreland has continued to perform general surgery for surgical problems – hernias, gallbladder, hiatal hernia repairs and anti-reflux procedures as well as colon surgery for diverticulitis and colon cancer. He says these surgeries are for surgical problems and when the surgery is over we are usually finished with the problem. Bariatric surgery is surgery for medical problems and after the surgery is performed we are just getting started and are never finished. He is extremely proud of his multi-disciplinary team who provide teaching and training to help support and promote the lifestyle changes that are necessary for long-term successful weight loss. He says “Obesity challenges every aspect of our human condition and requires attention to our body, mind and spirit to allow the individual to experience healing and live longer and better.”
