Surgeons at Weill Cornell Medicine are widely recognized and respected for their expertise and for being at the forefront of advances in the field.
Our surgeons treat a wide range of conditions, adopting and developing advanced methods for the surgical treatment of most abdominal disorders, including hernias, and conditions of the stomach, intestines, gallbladder and spleen.
At Weill Cornell Medicine, we perform repair of hernias, treat patients with surgical emergencies, perform biopsies, and remove growths from different parts of the body. Procedures are frequently performed using minimal access (laparoscopic and endoscopic) techniques.
We use the most advanced innovations, coupled with compassionate care to guide our patients through their individual surgical experiences.
"My 7 y/o daughter had inguinal hernia repair a couple of months ago this summer. The surgery went extremely smoothly. Within a week she was playing outside with her cousins and then off to 4 weeks of summer camp. Dr. Merianos and his staff took the time to answer all of our questions and make all of us feel less nervous going into the surgery. He also gave the same care and attention at the post-surgery follow-up appointment."
"Dr. Steigman and nurse Emily Sullivan are very kind and responsive whenever I emailed them with questions about the appointments and questions related to the surgical site. New York definitely needs more doctors and nurses like them!"
"Dr. Oh and the chief resident, Dr Robinson were amazing. They informed us along the way at every step of our daughter's emergency surgery. During recovery, I understood all aspects of the decisions that were being made for the care of our daughter. He and his team, answered every question with directness, respect and empathy. I am thankful Dr. Oh and his team were taking care of our family. I cannot say enough good about him and the team. We are grateful."
