In the past, digestive disorders that could not be well-managed with medication required conventional open surgery performed through large incisions. Today, many of these illnesses can be treated using minimally invasive approaches that make small incisions and, in many cases, no external incisions at all. Some of these procedures will allow you to go home the same day and avoid complications, infections, and higher costs. Our doctors also use minimally invasive surgery to free patients from their reliance on medications and restore comfort and quality of life.

When his gastroenterologist made two unsuccessful attempts to remove the polyp, the vice chief of colon and rectal surgery stepped in to recommend a new technology developed at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center.
Everyone at NewYork-Presbyterian was awesome. They're amazing doctors and great caregivers, and that's all you can ask for.
I am 1,000% sure I wouldn’t have made it if I didn’t get my care at NewYork-Presbyterian.
