The Institute for
Advanced and Minimally Invasive Surgery
New York Methodist Hospital was one of the first surgical teaching hospitals in the United States. Its Department of Surgery was founded by a pioneer surgeon, Lewis S. Pilcher, M.D., who also founded the Annals of Surgery. The Hospital's Institute for Advanced and Minimally Invasive Surgery at NYM continues a proud tradition. Just as Dr. Pilcher was an advanced and innovative physician and surgeon in his time, today's NYM surgeons serve Brooklyn with the most advanced and innovative surgical techniques currently available. The Institute offers a range of procedures involving surgical techniques that encompass laparoscopy ("key hole surgery"), endoscopy (imaging through small tubes), robotics and other advanced surgical technologies. Advanced and minimally invasive surgery mean smaller incisions, less pain, less scarring, a shorter hospital stay, and faster recovery. They also offer more surgical options for patients.
