I am General and Advanced Laparoscopic Surgeon with Lutz Surgical Partners practicing in the Naples, Florida area. I have started in private practice after practicing as a staff surgeon at the Cleveland Clinic, where I have also completed a two year fellowship in Advanced Laparoscopic and Bariatric Surgery. At the Cleveland Clinic, I have held positions with Cleveland Clinic Innovations and the Center for Surgical Innovation, Technology, and Education, located at the main campus in Cleveland, Ohio. Dr. Talarico completed a General Surgery residency at the University of Illinois at Chicago, is licensed by the State Medical Boards of Florida, and is board-certified by the American Board of Surgery.

After earning a Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry from Case Western Reserve University, I have received my medical degree from the University of Toledo School of Medicine in Toledo, Ohio.
