Gregory Dalencourt, MD
CalvertHealth Medical Center is proud to welcome robotic bariatric surgical specialist Dr. Gregory Dalencourt as director of its new robotic surgery program. He is fellowship trained in advanced GI minimally invasive and bariatric surgery and has performed nearly 2,000 laparoscopic and robotic bariatric procedures in the last 11 years.

Dr. Dalencourt comes to us from Crossroads Community Hospital (CCH) in southern Illinois, where he developed and directed its bariatric surgery program, which achieved national accreditation in 2021 as a Center of Excellence for its outstanding quality of care and patient outcomes.

In addition to serving as medical director of the bariatric surgery program at CCH, he also chaired the hospital’s Department of Surgery since 2019 and was elected Chief of Staff in 2020. He held all three positions for the past three years.

Dr. Dalencourt, who is board certified in general surgery, has joined CalvertHealth Surgical Specialists of Southern Maryland. He will be performing all types of general surgery procedures as well as some endoscopies. He has a special interest in the use of minimally invasive surgical techniques for treating problems of the foregut (upper GI tract) such as reflux disease, swallowing disorders and hiatal hernias.

Dr. Dalencourt received his medical degree from Ross University School of Medicine in 2002. He completed a general surgical residency at Geisinger Medical Center in 2007 and finished his fellowship training in advanced GI minimally invasive and bariatric surgery at Tufts Medical Center in 2012.

He said his relationship with patients is what drives him. “I see firsthand the positive and profound changes in their lives and health over time, and that is very rewarding.”

He went on to add, “My favorite part of bariatric surgery is making a lasting impact on a patient’s life by helping them achieve a healthier and more active lifestyle.”

Dr. Dalencourt brings this passion and extensive experience in robotic bariatric surgery to his new role where he will take the lead the building CalvertHealth’s robotics program – the latest step in the medical center’s multi-faceted strategy to grow its surgical program to provide area residents with enhanced access to advanced surgical options.

A native New Yorker, he still watches his hometown’s sports teams and enjoys good food and wine. He lives in Prince Frederick with his wife, Sophia, and their 11-year-old twin sons.
