NewYork-Presbyterian Lower Manhattan Hospital

Colon and Rectal Surgery

NewYork-Presbyterian Lower Manhattan Hospital offers state-of-the-art care to detect, diagnose, and treat disorders affecting the lower gastrointestinal tract — the colon, rectum, and anus. These disorders include:

  • Colon and rectal cancers
  • Inflammatory bowel disease (ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease)
  • Colorectal polyps
  • Diverticular diseases
  • Rectal prolapse
  • Fecal incontinence
  • Anal fissures
  • Hemorrhoids

Our colorectal surgeons specialize in minimally invasive approaches using the most modern laparoscopic and robotic surgery techniques. These approaches result in less postoperative pain, a shorter recovery time, and less scarring. Robotic surgery enables more precise procedures due to enhanced magnification of the surgical field and steadiness of the robot's instruments, offering the surgeon improved dexterity, easier suturing, and better ability to maneuver the instruments. At NewYork-Presbyterian Lower Manhattan Hospital, every patient who is eligible for laparoscopic surgery is considered for robotic surgery. Learn more about robotic colorectal surgery.

All NewYork-Presbyterian Lower Manhattan Hospital physicians are on the faculty of Weill Cornell Medicine. Within the familiar setting of their community hospital, patients experience a level of care found in a leading academic medical center.
