Mount Sinai’s Division of General Surgery is on the forefront of surgical advances to improve patient care. Our surgeons are committed to providing compassionate, superior patient care, while offering state-of-the-art technology for a broad spectrum of general surgical procedures. A full staff of highly qualified and recognized general surgeons performs all types of “open” general surgical operations, including liver resections, pancreatic procedures, and many other complex abdominal operations. The department has been on the cutting-edge of minimally invasive surgery performing these procedures since 1989 and serving as a major learning center for the adoption of this technology. General surgeons at Mount Sinai have pioneered laparoscopic techniques for the management of gall bladder disease, common bile duct stones, anti-reflux surgery, inguinal and ventral hernias, appendectomy, placement of dialysis catheters, colon, small bowel and gastric resections, and solid organ removal.
