Conditions We Treat
The general surgeons of the Mount Sinai Health System are highly skilled in successfully treating a wide range of conditions. Using minimally invasive techniques whenever possible, we work closely with other specialists in areas such as oncology, endocrinology, and gastroenterology to ensure you receive the best possible care.
- Bariatric (Weight Loss) Surgery: Our expert team will do a thorough assessment to determine if you are a candidate for weight loss surgery. We offer a variety of approaches, including gastric sleeve and gastric bypass procedures.
- Esophagus and Stomach Disorders: Minimally invasive techniques are used to treat many disorders of the esophagus including GERD, achalasia, and tumors.
- Gallbladder Disease: Gallstone disease, also called cholelithiasis, can be treated with laparoscopic cholecystectomy, a minimally invasive method of removing the gallbladder.
- Gastrointestinal and Colon and Rectal Conditions: Disorders including Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, and colorectal cancer may be treated with a range of minimally invasive techniques.
- Hernias: A hernia is a weakness or defect in the wall of the abdomen. There are many types of hernias, and they can often be repaired using laparoscopic or more recently, robotic approaches.
- Neuroendocrine Tumors: Neuroendocrine tumors can develop anywhere in the body, but typically appear in the appendix, lungs, small intestine, pancreas, and rectum. Surgery is sometimes required to remove certain neuroendocrine tumors, including carcinoid tumors.
- Spleen, Adrenal, and Pancreatic Disorders: A number of conditions could affect the spleen, adrenal glands, and pancreas. If medications fail, these disorders are best treated through a variety of open or minimally invasive surgical techniques.
