Michael Wayne, DO, recently joined the Department of Surgery at NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital. In his new role, Dr. Wayne concentrates on surgical oncology with a focus on treating patients with liver, pancreatic and stomach cancer.
Dr. Wayne is board-certified in surgery and has over 20 years of experience performing pancreatic procedures. He is a specialist in hepatobiliary-pancreatic surgery with a clinical focus on minimally invasive pancreatic surgery. Previously, he worked at Mount Sinai-Beth Israel Medical Center as a pancreatico-biliary surgeon.
“After training as an adult and pediatric liver transplant surgeon, I developed a passion for liver and pancreatic surgery,” says Dr. Wayne “I am excited to be part of the NYP Brooklyn Methodist team and expand the range of minimally invasive procedures offered.” Dr. Wayne’s expertise also includes Whipple resections, a complex procedure used to treat tumors and other disorders of the pancreas, intestine and bile duct.
“We are delighted to welcome Dr. Wayne to the NYP Brooklyn Methodist family,” says Michael Zenilman, MD, chairman of the department of surgery at the Hospital. “He brings techniques that complement those of the HPB surgeons already here, further reinforcing NYP Brooklyn Methodist’s prominence as a treatment destination for complex liver, pancreatic and upper intestinal surgical diseases.”
