Welcome to Our Practice
What Sets Us Apart
Our colorectal surgeons are all recognized leaders in their fields, and many of them serve as chiefs of colorectal surgery at various hospitals on Long Island and in the greater NYC area. Each of our physicians is double-board-certified and also an educator of future colorectal surgeons.
We perform procedures in state-of-the art facilities. Colonoscopies and minor surgical procedures are performed in our own ambulatory surgical center, Meadowbrook Endoscopy Center, that is certified by the NYS Department of Health. Board certified anesthesiologists provide safe and reliable sedation. More complex procedures are performed at Mount Sinai South Nassau utilizing the most advanced technology available including the da Vinci Xi robotic surgical system and ALL of our patients stay in brand new private rooms.
We consider surgery to be a last resort in all cases. Before recommending surgery, our physicians will consider all non-surgical treatment plans and regimens. If colorectal surgery is the best choice for your health, we use the least invasive methods possible, utilizing laparoscopic and robotic technology.

Prioritizing Your Health and Comfort
Your health and comfort are important to us, so we always use the most minimally invasive options possible for diagnosis and treatment. For certain conditions, we can provide diet and lifestyle counseling, or medications to treat symptoms. Rectal surgery can be considered if these solutions are not effective.
Our sedation options are safe and effective, and can help relieve any anxiety you might experience.
Our state-of-the-art ambulatory surgical center is equipped with the latest technology. Surgery using endoscopic and laparoscopic techniques allows us to precisely target the treatment area, while promoting faster healing and minimizing discomfort. For further comfort, we have an anesthesiologist who can provide sedation during treatment, as needed. Our sedation options are safe and effective, and can help relieve any anxiety you might experience. Our team will also keep you fully informed about what your treatments will involve every step of the way to further maintain your peace of mind.
Colonoscopies are important for maintaining your health and detecting any potentially harmful conditions before they become more serious. We perform all colonoscopies at our state-of-the-art facilities, where your safety is our top priority. Thanks to our board-certified anesthesiologist, every procedure is painless, and we are able to minimize costs because all facilities and providers are in-network.
During a colonoscopy with CRSSNY, we use the most advanced Olympus® instruments. Olympus is the gold standard for endoscopy and colonoscopy. We are capable of handling any type of pathology identified during the procedure so there will never be a situation where you would have to be referred to a more specialized facility.
