Abdominal Procedures in Manhattan

Learn How Our Skilled Colorectal Surgeons Can Help You

When you are facing an abdominal procedure, our physicians are up-to-date on the latest procedures. Based upon your age and medical history, you may be asked to have blood tests, an electrocardiogram, and a chest X-ray prior to your procedure. In addition, a physical examination by your primary care physician or a specialist, such as a cardiologist, may be requested. The need for this pre-testing will be determined by your surgeon and is individualized for each of our patients.


In preparation for your adbominal procedure, you will be asked to avoid eating or drinking after midnight the evening prior to the procedure. Ask your doctor whether or not to take your prescription medications the morning of the procedure. The need to take these medications is individualized for each patient. In addition, you may be asked to take a bowel preparation the day prior to your surgery. The need for a bowel preparation and the specific type of preparation used will be individualized for each patient.

Please contact your surgeon or our surgical coordinator with any questions. We can be reached 24 hours a day at 646.798.4606.
