Columbia’s Division of GI/Endocrine Surgery is dedicated to leading the field of pancreatic, hepatobiliary, and endocrine surgery through top-quality clinical care, academic excellence, and pioneering research.

Patient Care

The GI/Endocrine Surgery Division includes comprehensive care for diseases of the pancreas, stomach cancer, and conditions related to the thyroid, parathyroid, and adrenal glands. Our surgeons work with specialists across multiple fields, such as oncology and genetics, to run dedicated treatment centers that provide both surgical and non-surgical options. Our specialists are trained in both traditional surgical approaches and the latest minimally invasive and interventional surgical procedures.
