About Us

The Department of Surgery at Weill Cornell Medicine offers a multidisciplinary approach involving specialized care and clinical research related to the treatment of both benign and malignant tumors.

Our surgeons, who are based in New York City, evaluate patients alongside medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and microvascular surgeons to provide multidisciplinary treatment planning and disease-specific clinical trials.

Surgeons specialize in the conventional, complex and laparoscopic treatment of tumors, including the use of experimental therapies and advanced surgical techniques. Our surgeons have undergone specialty training in oncology and offer a high degree of specialization and expertise.
