About Us

The Weill Cornell Medicine GI Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Program is dedicated to providing the most advanced diagnostic and surgical techniques to help you to accomplish your individual health goals.

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:

  • Laparoscopic and robotic bariatric surgery, which uses the most advanced techniques to perform weight loss surgery
  • Metabolic surgery, which aims to put type 2 diabetes into long lasting remission
  • Minimally invasive gastrointestinal surgery, which addresses a broad variety of disorders, ranging from hernias to problems that arise in the stomach, gall bladder, esophagus and intestine

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.

Contact us today to schedule a consultation or to learn more about our services.
