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.
Dr. Terushkin deeply cares about his patients, their health and wellbeing, which is why he wants them to be successful. When it comes to choosing the right weight loss solution/program, he works directly with his patients and certified staff to come up with tailored individual plans for every case. This is done, so patients can loose weight, keep it off and implement the lifestyle changes necessary to stay healthy and live happy lives.
BMI (body mass indicator) is a measure of body fat based on weight that applies to adult men and women between ages of 18 and 65. A healthy BMI score is between 20 and 25.
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.
In addition to the medical benefits patients experience post surgery, there are a number of emotional stresses bariatric surgery helps to resolve. While weight loss surgery doesn’t make you a different person, you will have an improved ability to participate in recreational activities, and not fall victim to physical restrictions.
If you are ready to experience the benefits of bariatric surgery for yourself and to take the first steps on a path to a healthy lifestyle, start by attending one of our free seminars, or call us with your questions at: (347)-830-3003
We look forward to providing you with excellence in medical care and guiding you throughout your life changing weight loss journey.

I went for a consultation with Dr. Terushkin and he is by far the most amazingly thorough, personable, professional and friendly doctor I have come across.
