The decision about whether to undergo surgery is often complex and very personal, which is why our team of world-renowned surgeons and clinicians provide individualized care alongside the latest advances in medicine.
Our specialties include:
Our use of cutting-edge, minimally invasive methods means small incisions, a short hospital stay (if any), and a quicker recovery from your operation. All surgery is performed at NewYork-Presbyterian, the #1 hospital in New York City for 17 years in a row.
In addition to our surgical expertise, we also offer nutritional guidance and support groups as part of our comprehensive approach.
