John G. Touliatos, M.D. FACS

“My commitment as a surgeon is to provide the highest quality care with the most effective and progressive means available. Minimally-invasive techniques now allow us to perform complex surgeries with excellent outcome and minimal discomfort. This advance in medicine elevates the standard of care for surgery and has motivated me to advance in this area. I am very thankful to be a part of a group of surgeons who desire excellence in all things as I do. The physicians and staff share my beliefs and goals and we look confidently to the future as we advance together.”
