In 2018, we welcomed several internationally renowned physicians to the Department of Surgery at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Irving Medical Center. These men and women are leaders in their respective fields.

While these surgeons spearhead the newest treatments and techniques, they are also very compassionate communicators.
