Minimally Invasive Surgery
NewYork-Presbyterian Hudson Valley Hospital’s Digestive Health Center provides advanced laparoscopic and endoscopic procedures to treat diseases of the esophagus, adrenal gland, spleen, colon and gallbladder, including gastrointestinal reflux disease (GERD), paraesophageal hernia repair, and achalasia (a swallowing disorder).
We perform Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS™), a minimally invasive procedure to remove the gallbladder in patients with benign gallbladder conditions. SILS™ is performed through a single incision in the belly button, which results in the potential for no visible scar and a faster recovery.
Medical Weight Management Program
NewYork-Presbyterian Hudson Valley Hospital offers a full-spectrum medical weight management program that includes non-surgical modalities for patients who need a targeted weight loss program or who may not be candidates for surgical weight loss procedures. A multidisciplinary team comprised of gastroenterologists, nutritionists, nurses and nurse practitioners provides comprehensive weight management that address each patient’s unique weight loss goals and needs.
The Motility Center
Motility disorders, problems related to the movement of food contents through the GI tract, can be very stressful for patients. At NewYork-Presbyterian Hudson Valley Hospital we provide a comprehensive motility program to optimize your motility function and improve quality of life. Our advanced diagnostic and treatment approaches address a full range of motility issues, including esophageal and colorectal disorders as well as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), difficulty swallowing, and altered bowel patterns including constipation, diarrhea and fecal incontinence.
