Lenox Hill Hospital offers surgical and nonsurgical treatment options for diseases of the colon and rectum. We treat a wide variety of diseases, including colon and rectal cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, rectal prolapse, bowel incontinence, hemorrhoids, Crohn’s disease and diverticular disease.

The division is staffed by board-certified colorectal surgeons and general surgeons with years of experience utilizing cutting-edge medical and surgical techniques for better patient outcomes. Our colorectal surgeons specialize in traditional surgical techniques, as well as minimally invasive laparoscopic and robotic surgery, which offer patients a range of benefits like less postoperative pain, shortened recovery time and less scarring. 


At Northwell Health, we train more future physicians than almost any other health system in America, educating more than 1,800 residents and fellows each year.
