“I’ve always been a helping kind of person, even as a child. Growing up, I was always that guy to help friends and family with their fitness and general health concerns. Bariatric surgery combines those innate desires with the most leading-edge modern and technical skills needed to perform surgery. I like telling people I can cure their diabetes and hypertension with surgery, instead of masking their symptoms with life-long medications and their side effects” expressed Dr. Danthuluri.

The ABS is an independent, non-profit organization located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, founded for the purpose of certifying surgeons who have met a defined standard of education, training, and knowledge.
To boot, he has been recognized as a Diplomate of the American Board of Obesity Medicine (DABOM), which is a 501 nonprofit, self-appointed physician-evaluation organization that certifies physicians practicing obesity medicine.
Remaining up to date in his field, Dr. Danthuluri is an active member of the American College of Surgeons, the Society of Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons, the Texas Medical Association, the Travis County Medical Society, and the Georgia Composite Medical Board.
General surgery is a surgical specialty that focuses on abdominal contents including the esophagus, stomach, small bowel, colon, liver, pancreas, gallbladder, appendix and bile ducts, and often the thyroid gland. A general surgeon performs a wide range of abdominal surgeries for many forms of intestinal and abdominal wall neoplasms, gallbladder disease, gastric and pancreatic disease. They follow the patient through critical care and surgical recovery all the way to outpatient care.
On a more personal note, he loves spending his free time with his wife and three children, exploring Austin. He has lived in Alabama most of his life but fell in love with Texas during his fellowship training. When he is not operating, he can be found outdoors walking his dog, hiking or climbing. He loves watching football and soccer and is excited for the arrival of Austin’s new professional soccer team.
