Surgery of the Digestive Tract at White Plains Hospital

The board certified gastrointestinal, colorectal and hepatobiliary surgical specialists at White Plains Hospital are highly qualified to perform minimally invasive and complex surgeries for benign and malignant conditions along the entire digestive tract. This area covers the esophagus, stomach, intestines, colon, rectum, gall bladder, liver, pancreas, and bile duct.

Because disorders of the gastrointestinal tract can overlap with problems affecting many other areas of the body, our surgeons take a multidisciplinary approach to treatment, working with other specialists in thoracic surgery (for certain disorders of the esophagus), gastroenterology, hepatology (liver specialists), oncology, radiation therapy, and anesthesiologists to find the best and most effective care for each patient’s situation. Patients with GI disorders who previously might have had to travel into the city for their surgical procedures can now have their pre-operative evaluation, surgery, chemotherapy or radiation in the case of malignant disease, and any other necessary medical procedures and follow-up care right here in White Plains.
