NewYork-Presbyterian/Lower Manhattan Hospital offers state-of-the-art care in the detection, diagnosis, and treatment of disorders affecting the lower gastrointestinal tract – the colon, rectum, and anus. These disorders include colon and rectal cancers, inflammatory bowel disease, diverticular diseases, and functional problems such as rectal prolapse, fecal incontinence, anal fissures, and hemorrhoids. Colorectal surgeons specialize in the minimal access approaches to colon and rectal surgery using the most modern laparoscopic techniques. This results in decreased postoperative pain, shorter postoperative recovery time, and less scarring.
All NewYork-Presbyterian/Lower Manhattan Hospital physicians are on the faculty of Weill Cornell Medical College. Within the familiar setting of their community hospital, patients experience a level of care found in a leading academic medical center.
