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.

What Our Patients Are Saying
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.
The Knight in the Shining Armor has a name: Dr. Nitsana Spigland. When your oh-so-expected and already so-so-loved newborn baby is born with a health challenge that requires surgery, it’s like living your worst nightmare. But then Dr. Spigland comes in and literally saves your whole world.
There is so much that we want to say about how much Dr. Oh means to our family. Our son’s trip to Weill Cornell was the first medical challenge our family has faced (we have been very lucky), and sitting in the ER hearing his diagnosis was the scariest moment of our lives. But when Dr. Oh walked in to the room in the ER, we immediately felt reassured. He was confident, smart, compassionate and patient as he walked us through the surgery he needed and his recovery. Our son’s surgery went perfectly thanks to Dr. Oh and his team, and his recovery has been smooth. Dr. Oh has been available to us through every step of his recovery, and it is very reassuring to know he is there if we have any questions or concerns. We both will never forget Dr. Oh walking into our room to let us know the surgery went well – with a huge smile on his face that immediately made us feel better. Dr. Oh clearly has a gift - not only for surgery, but also for caring for scared parents during difficult times. We feel incredibly grateful that Dr. Oh happened to be on call when we were in the ER, and would recommend him without any reservation to any other family who needs a surgeon to care for their child. He is the best of the best.
