About Our Multidisciplinary Team
Our multidisciplinary team comprising
general and pediatric surgeons, gastroenterologists, a psychologist, registered dietitians and nurses
have the combined expertise and experience to diagnose and treat the most
complex esophageal and gastric conditions. The Center for Minimally Invasive
Esophageal and Gastric Surgery’s high surgical and endoscopic volume
is associated with consistently superior patient outcomes.
The director of the center, board-certified surgeons Frank Borao, M.D.,
and Steven Binenbaum, M.D., are among just a handful of surgeons in New
Jersey to complete fellowship training in advanced laparoscopic surgery.
Additionally, the center’s interventional gastroenterologists have
extensive experience with endoscopic procedures.
When surgery or endoscopy is indicated, treatment options are carefully
determined by the mature judgment of experienced, board-certified surgeons
and gastroenterologists. Monmouth’s Center for Minimally Invasive
Esophageal and Gastric Surgery offers physicians who rank among the nation’s
most experienced advanced laparoscopic practitioners — and this
experience allows them to tailor the procedure to the patient rather than
the patient to the procedure. Leading this multidisciplinary team is Dr.
Borao, the director of laparoscopy for Monmouth Medical Center, who has
published some of the pioneering techniques of laparoscopic gastric bypass.
