Dr. Terushkin is a graduate of a fellowship at Cleveland Clinic who specializes in minimally invasive and bariatric surgery. Our philosophy is providing surgical excellence by combining cutting edge technology and individualized patient care. A few of the most commonly performed procedures include laparoscopic gastric banding, laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy, laparoscopic gallbladder surgery, and laparoscopic hernia repair. Dr. Terushkin is a member of the American College of Surgeons and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery.
While there are a number of non surgical diet plans available, bariatric surgery, whether it’s gastric bypass, lap band surgery or sleeve gastrectomy, produces the best results for achieving long-term success. Bariatric Surgery Can Effectively Treat Type 2 Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, and Sleep Apnea. Bariatric surgery has been documented as reducing premature death rates and improving, if not curing, the co-morbidities (other related illnesses) associated with being obese. We’ve also seen improvement with arthritis general pain, mobility, asthma, infertility, and lymphedema.
