About

Bio

Dr. Artuso has been in practice for 24 years, being devoted to performing only bariatric surgery for the last 12 years. Although the majority of his present surgeries are lap-band procedures, he has performed many laparoscopic gastric bypass procedures and also gastric bypass revisions for weight regain. He recently has begun performing sleeve gastrectomies and lap-bands through fewer incisions.
