Leading Center in the Management of Reflux and Esophageal Disorders

Comprehensive Care for the Whole You

A combination of minimally invasive robotic surgeons led by Dr Rasa Zarnegar and gastroenterologists will discuss available options for you. The team will focus on qualities and outcomes that are important to you so we can provide individualized treatment plans. 

This groups has focused on patient centric treatment options for reflux and esophageal disorders. Dr Zarnegar and his group have performed 1000's of esophageal procedures for reflux, hiatal and paraesophageal hernias, and achalasia, as well as benign and malignant tumors. 

All procedures are performed either using the latest surgical techniques using robotic surgery, endoscopically through the mouth, or combination procedures. These approaches allow for fast recovery allowing patients to return to their lives quickly. Most patients go home the same day from their procedures.

The surgical and endoscopic procedures are developed in conjunction with the patients diagnostic findings and a complete understanding of the options available. Treatment options include:

  • Robotic Surgery

  • Endoscopic Surgery

At Weill Cornell Medicine we aim to make your treatment our priority. We believe that successful outcomes arise from comprehensive testing. This allows for improved outcomes and better treatment selection.

 

In most cases we can coordinate same day or next day testing at a variety of facilities including:

1. Radiology

2. High Resolution Esophageal Manometry and Endoflip

3. pH Testing

Our Innovative Approach to Reflux and Achalasia

We believe that all patients have diseases that require individualized therapies with your goals as our main priority.

 

By achieving these goals we will aim to improve your overall quality of life.
