About Us

Weill Cornell Medicine is a major referral center for complex and rare gastrointestinal disorders in infants and children.

Our programs for children integrate the expertise of pediatric anesthesiologists, pediatric radiologists, pediatric gastroenterologists, neonatologists, perinatologists and other surgical subspecialists who work collaboratively to coordinate a fully integrated plan of care.

Treatment, counseling and planning for corrective action can start before birth, while the child is still in the womb, through our involvement with the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital Perinatal Center.

We also treat children with a variety of gastrointenstinal and hepatic and biliary malignancies. In addition to the primary resection of intraabdominal and gastrointestinal tumors, we perform hepatic resections and Kasai portoenterostomies for the treatment of biliary atresia. We are also an active member of the Children’s Oncology Group, the world’s largest organization devoted exclusively to childhood and adolescent cancer research.

Our physicians also treat the full spectrum of gastrointestinal disorders in older children. This includes diagnosis and treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease, intestinal motility disorders, inflammatory bowel disease, diverticular diseases in children, hepatobiliary disorders and malrotation.

All care takes place at on kid-friendly pediatric floor, where a child life program and child-friendly operating rooms help smooth the transition for young patients’ stay in the hospital.
