F I T 2 0 1 8 - 2 0 1 9 3 1 History: Over a decade ago, Dr. Vince Lusco and Dr. John Olsofka developed the bariatric program at Sts. Mary and Elizabeth Hospital. The two surgeons began introducing patients to healthier lives through the LAP-BAND® System. Success: Patients who were morbidly obese began to free themselves from medications, enjoy family events and engage in activities they once deemed impossible. The highest quality outcomes and their remarkable aftercare program for over 4,000 LAP-BAND® procedures set Drs. Lusco and Olsofka apart. Vision: The surgeons were recognized nationally and their program was selected as one of the first in the country to place the Orbera Intragastric Balloon. The balloon allows the surgeons to support a wider range of patients. The Orbera Intragastric Balloon gives patients seeking to lose 30-60 pounds in a six-month period a safe and less-invasive option his family and reading medical research. Dr. Greene and his wife also enjoy and as a result Drs. Lusco and Olsofka can now devote their expertise to a broader spectrum of patients considering weight- loss procedures. Focus: The surgeons currently focus on both lower body mass indexes as well as morbidly obese patients. Dr. Lusco and Dr. Olsoa are dedicated to helping patients transform their lives.
