About Us

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.

Talking about Philip Chang, M.D.

"I’ve never known a finer physician. When I had surgery in July, they forgot to order my tray for that evenings dinner. I mentioned it to Dr. Chang when he came to check on me and he came back an hour later with food from the Cafe in the hospital’s lobby. He doesn’t just care for his patients he cares for the person he’s treating. When I call him, he always calls me back personally. He also always answers when I message him though the portal. I call him a Rock Star, because that’s exactly what he is. My favorite Dr. on the planet. I also want to give honorable mention to his secretaries, Bobbie & Anne Marie. They always call me back and are always friendly & helpful. Dr. Chang and his whole team are to be commended. They’re a very valuable asset to Weill Cornell and are at least one of the reasons NY Presbyterian is the #1 hospital in NY. I have 3rd deg.burns over 70% of my body that I got at 4 years old. I’m now 72 so I’ve seen a lot of Burn Surgeons in my day. He is without a doubt the best."

Talking about Anton Kelly, MD

"My mother required surgical intervention, we chose Dr. Kelly and we are so happy with him and his team. Dr. Kelly was amazing; my mother is not fluent in English and because of Covid 19 I was not able to be at the hospital during much of their interaction with the doctors. Dr. Kelly was good to her, he made sure she understood him and treated her with respect. My mother is very happy with the care she received by Dr. Kelly and his team, she felt cared for. She received culturally appropriate care and his team was sensitive to our needs. Thansk Dr. kelly"
