Why Choose Weill Cornell Medicine?

Weill Cornell Medicine surgeons are leaders in minimally invasive surgery, particularly laparoscopy and robotic surgery.

Unlike traditional “open” surgery, these minimally invasive procedures involve small incisions, which make surgery less painful. Patients also recover more quickly using this approach.

Our surgeons are experts on abdominal wall hernia repair via laparoscopy and robotic surgery. We repair all types of hernias – including ventral, umbilical, epigastric, incisional and inguinal hernias – through these minimally invasive techniques. Using robotic technology, we are also able to perform complex abdominal wall reconstruction for larger hernias with great results.

Working alongside with Weill Cornell nephrology services, our doctors also are able to place peritoneal catheters for dialysis on renal patients via laparoscopy.
