Dr Talarico was very helpful when I had been having pain for a long time. He found out that my gallbladder had to go, and was able to schedule me for surgery the same week. I am very grateful that he was able to help me to feel better.

I had a painful inguinal hernia for 2 years. Dr. Talarico did a great job fixing my hernia with the robot, and I have been pain free since healing from surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Talarico and the robot for hernias.
