The Center emphasizes an integrated, collaborative team approach to provide the best possible care – and “one stop shopping” – for each patient. The surgeons will work closely with nutritionists, enterostomal therapists, nurses, and social workers. In addition, the surgeons will draw upon the extensive, internationally renowned expertise available within the North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System. This extended team includes gastroenterologists and pathologists who specialize in the full spectrum of colorectal diseases, as well as radiologists with expertise in advanced imaging techniques such as virtual colonoscopy, defecograms, magnetic resonance imaging, and interventional radiology.
