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.
"Dr. Zarnegar is my hero! Not that I have any medical expertise or experience but he is excellent all around and I highly recommend him if you need surgical care. Take it from someone who never had surgery in his entire life. I did plenty of research in my efforts to line up the right doctor at the right time to get a hernia repaired, one that I had been prolonging for years. I had consulted with nearly a half a dozen surgeons from the Eastern end of Long Island to NYC, from some of the top medical institutions. I always knew I had a right inguinal hernia, but among the consultations I had, Dr. Zarnegar was the only surgeon to identify that I had not just one but three hernias: left and right inguinal hernias plus an umbilical hernia. Only one other surgeon picked up on the umbilical hernia in addition to the right inguinal. Given the cost of healthcare today, can you imagine what the out-of-pocket expense would have been if I had to endure 3 separate surgeries rather than the one"
"Dr. Winchell is a fantastic doctor. He fixed my appendicitis, and he was extremely kind during the post-op visit."
"Our experience with Dr Merianos was absolutely wonderful! He explain the surgical procedure in detail and was patient with all our questions. The surgery itself went smooth, the staff at Weill Cornell hospital made our 3.5 year old daughter laugh and smile through the surgery day!"
