"My 8 yo son had a ruptured appendix. Dr Steigman did a great job on what was a complicated case with a gangrenous appendix with pus. Post operatively my son got transferred to Cornell's new pediatric floor for closer monitoring which had a children's playroom-- a great perk. Dr Steigman was never rushed and had an excellent bedside manner. I recommend him highly."
"My son had surgery on April 2nd 2018 to remove a CPAM (congenital lung defect) at Weill Cornell. My son was only 4 months old so of course we were sad and scared but we had comfort knowing our son was in the best hands. He is now 8 months and perfect, reaching all his milestones and growing well! We are happy that the scarring is very minimal to almost nothing. No one wants their baby to have surgery but if they need it, you are in great hands with Dr.Steigman."
