About Us

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

Weill Cornell Pediatric Surgery Located at New York's Komansky Center for Children's Health

Our programs for children integrate the expertise of pediatric anesthesiologists, pediatric surgeons, 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. Children or parents admitted to the center will be able to meet with a skilled pediatric gastrointestinal doctor for consultation.

We also treat children with a variety of gastrointestinal, hepatic and biliary malignancies. In addition to the primary resection of intra-abdominal 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 mal-rotation.

All care takes place on a 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.

"My 8 yo son had a ruptured appendix. Dr Steigman did a great job on what was a complicated case with a gangrenous appendix with pus. Post operatively my son got transferred to Cornell's new pediatric floor for closer monitoring which had a children's playroom-- a great perk. Dr Steigman was never rushed and had an excellent bedside manner. I recommend him highly."
