Weill Cornell Medicine’s trauma, burns, acute and critical care surgery program provides a vitally-needed service for the community, and offers critically-ill patients a unique expertise and compassionate care from highly-skilled surgeons who are at the top of their field.
The trauma center at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center has been designated a Level I adult and a Level II pediatric trauma center by the American College of Surgeons for our ability to provide the highest quality of care, especially in critical and complex cases.
Our first priority is to save lives. Our philosophy is to provide total care for each of our patients and to always be available when needed. We not only preform surgery and provide other lifesaving treatments, but we also follow our patients throughout hospitalization and recovery, providing a seamless continuity of care.
Our multidisciplinary team includes highly trained trauma surgeons, burn specialists, critical care specialists, acute care surgeons, rehabilitation professionals, psychologists, and social workers. We have all the specialists needed to care for any injury and are ready to manage a wide variety of emergencies.
We recognize that particularly at the time of a crisis, patients and their families need compassion, sensitivity to their concerns, and ongoing communication. We maintain an environment of open dialogue so patients and their families are involved in decision-making as much as possible.
