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

Lauren Nikrooz

We will forever be grateful for Dr Chiweshe after she operated on our newborn baby. She has been clear and concise when explaining to us the procedure and the many steps that followed. Along with being extremely patient and caring.

Our baby girl was born on August 2023, and soon after, was diagnosticated with Biliary Atresia with Splenic Malformation Syndrome (BASM), which was adjacent to Hererotaxy Syndrome. The liver team at Weill-Cornell New York Presbyterian recommended a Kasai procedure to be performed before the end of first month of life, in the hands of Dr. Dimitri Merianos. Right after the confirmation of the date for surgery, Dr. Merianos reached out to us and with an outstanding empatic approach, without loosing objectivity, explained to us in great detail the characteristics of the procedure and the possible outcomes. Prior and after surgery (which included the Kasai Procedure, LADD Procedure, Gallbladder and Apendix removal) Dr. Merianos was always available for consultations and in several occasions even made first contact to let us know how everything was developing. Our baby Adri is now two months old and we’re extremely grateful for the professionalism and kindness of Dr. Merianos.
