The Division of Colorectal Surgery at Northwell Health offers comprehensive surgical care for diseases of the colon, rectum, small intestines and anus.
Our surgical team uses the latest techniques to provide optimal care with less pain, faster recovery time and fewer complications. We perform high volumes of laparoscopic surgery, robotic surgery and other minimally invasive procedures. By utilizing these minimally invasive surgical techniques, we have improved visualization of difficult areas and can perform procedures with greater precision.
We work closely with gastroenterologists, medical oncologists, nutritionists, physical therapists, nurse navigators, and genetic counselors to ensure we are treating the whole patient, not just the disease. For cancer cases, we hold weekly tumor board meetings with oncologists, radiologists, pathologists and other specialists to develop and revise treatment plans for each patient to ensure they are receive the best possible care available.
