Dr. Rutkoski's Care Philosophy

Dr. Rutkoski says...

At Buffalo Minimally Invasive Weight Loss Surgical Solutions, we understand that being truly successful with weight loss surgery requires much more than the procedure itself. It takes a lifetime commitment on the part of the patient and the practice. Which is why, although fully capable of performing a broad range of general surgical procedures, our primary emphasis is metabolic and bariatric surgery. This allows us to focus on the entire spectrum of care required for a lifetime of success. Our practice offers a complete range of services including an extensive social and support network following your surgery.

Dr. Rutkoski says...

In addition to my general surgical training, I completed a minimally invasive / robotic advanced gastrointestinal surgery fellowship which provided me with a broad experience in all disorders of the digestive system. Although particularly passionate about weight loss surgery and the many benefits that it has on health conditions such as hypertension, obstructive sleep apnea, and type II diabetes mellitus, I have been trained in the latest techniques to address a wide array of surgical needs.
