At Weill Cornell Medicine, patients receive expert, compassionate care from physicians who are at the forefront of medical innovation through the development of new cures, treatments and technologies.

Ranked #14 nationwide, Weill Cornell Medicine’s Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology is proud to partner with NewYork-Presbyterian, ranked #6 in the nation and #1 in NYC  by US News and World Report.

Our nationally-recognized gastrointestinal program provides treatment for a wide range of digestive- and liver-related disorders, including:

  • Hepatitis C
  • Fatty liver
  • Liver cirrhosis
  • Liver cancer
  • Liver transplantation
  • Pancreatic and gallbladder diseases

  • Other intestinal infections

Our healthcare providers, including our gastroenterology and hepatology doctors in New York, create personalized care plans that incorporate proven diagnostic and therapeutic methods as well as cutting-edge procedures, like advanced interventional endoscopy, a minimally invasive procedure that allows physicians to detect and treat disorders in the digestive tract. With a pediatric gastroenterologist on staff, we are also prepared to treat children who present with gastrointestinal conditions.

Addiitonally, we offer the newest endoscopic therapies for obesity as well as capsule (pill) endoscopy, a new noninvasive method to take images of the digestive tract.

Patients can also receive specialized care at one of our collaborative centers, which focus on specific digestive and liver conditions:

  • The Jay Monahan Center for Gastrointestinal Health, named in memory of Katie Couric's late husband, provides multidisciplinary care for gastrointestinal cancers, genetic screening for hereditary cancers and management of esophageal and motility disorders.
  • The Jill Roberts Center for Inflammatory Bowel Disease provides state-of-the art treatment options for patients with ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease.
  • The Center for Liver Disease provides comprehensive care, including liver transplantation, for all forms of liver disease. It includes the Center for the Study of Hepatitis C which offers specialized treatment to patients infected with the virus.
  • The Advanced Endoscopy program provides cutting-edge minimally invasive procedures for a variety of GI, liver and pancreatic diseases, which in many cases, allows patients to avoid surgery. A new program focuses on management of obesity and fatty liver disease in conjunction with our weight loss program, our bariatric surgery program and our Center for Liver Disease team.

"Dr. Watkins was extremely friendly, and knowledgeable, he put me right at ease. Was able to answer all of my questions. Prior to meeting with him I was hesitant about the transplant process. he helped ease my fears by informing me of the benefits of receiving a transplant. Additionally he knew where Poughkeepsie was.."

"Dr Benjamin Samstein is one of the most incredible doctors in so many areas of his field. His skill and knowledge as a liver transplant surgeon is difficult to surpass as our sister was close to not surviving and his surgical wisdom and dedication gave her a second chance at life. Also as a family we found he was warmly personable, very informative and open to our questions regarding our sisters care and recovery. Our sister, Marie, and we as a family were truly blessed to have Dr Samstein and his team on this difficult and now rewarding journey. With All Gratitude, The Hegarty Family"
