Leading General Surgeons for Exceptional Care

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.

Multidisciplinary, Personalized Surgical Care

To support you throughout your journey, we coordinate our services with doctors in other specialties as well as your primary care physician to ensure everyone is working together to provide you with the best possible care. Our goal is to not only treat your condition, but to minimize pain and scarring, reduce recovery time, and get you back to your normal daily life as quickly as possible.

Leaders in Advanced Techniques and Technology

Our surgeons use the most advanced surgical techniques and technology available. We specialize in minimally invasive techniques — including laparoscopic and robotic-assisted surgical procedures — which offer effective care for our patients with less pain and shorter recovery.

As a scientifically based, academic institution we are at the forefront of the latest treatments. We are committed to advancing the field of general surgery by researching new procedures and technologies, and participating in the education of residents and medical students.

Through this combination of research advances and personalized attention, the general surgery team at the Weill Cornell Medicine is committed to providing each of our patients with the finest possible care.

What Our Patients Are Saying

Christian Galgano
Talking about Rasa Zarnegar, M.D.

"Dr. Zarnegar fixed my acid reflux (that would not heal with medicine) via robotic surgery, which is a miracle for me. He is not only a world-class surgeon but has had a great, caring manner throughout the process. Forever grateful."
