Expert treatment for patients who have conditions ranging from hernias and appendicitis to challenging and life-threatening diseases of the lungs, chest, abdomen, liver, stomach, and intestines is available in General Surgery at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. Many procedures can be safely performed on an out-patient basis, allowing the patient to return home the same day after the immediate recovery period.
General Surgery groups at both the Division of General Surgery at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia and NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell have a particular focus on minimal access (laparoscopic) surgery. Minimal access surgery is available for the surgical treatment of most abdominal disorders, including hernias, and conditions of the stomach, intestines, gallbladder, and spleen.
