Surgical Oncology

The Department of Surgery at Weill Cornell Medicine offers a multidisciplinary approach involving specialized care and clinical research related to the treatment of both benign and malignant tumors.

Our surgeons, who are based in New York City, evaluate patients alongside medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and microvascular surgeons to provide multidisciplinary treatment planning and disease-specific clinical trials.

Surgeons specialize in the conventional, complex and laparoscopic treatment of tumors, including the use of experimental therapies and advanced surgical techniques. Our surgeons have undergone specialty training in oncology and offer a high degree of specialization and expertise.

"Dr. Samstein- is simply amazing. He explained everything and answered any questions we had. The transplant went according to plan and I am stronger everyday. Dr. Samstein checked in on me everyday I was in Cornell Hospital, answering questions and letting me know how my liver and blood results were. He has a wonderful bed side manner, making you feel very at ease, due to you being so informed about what would happen. I would highly recommend Dr. Samstein to anyone who requires a liver specialist"

"Dr. Swistel not only saved my life but he also saved my sister's life, three times from breast cancer. He's not only a genius surgeon but one of the most genuine, caring human beings I know. He is so kind and thorough! had Dr. Swistel not been persistent to the point of having his secretary call me for a follow-up, I would not be here today to tell my story. What other physicians couldn't figure out, Dr. Swistel was able to diagnose that the lump in my breast was not breast cancer but Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Maria Benvenuti & Telmiza Benvenuti"
