Surgical Oncologist, Program Director of Surgery

Greetings. Welcome to the General Surgery Residency at Mount Sinai South Nassau. Our goal is to train competent and confident general surgeons.

We are excited to train the next generation of surgeons as a young and vibrant program. There is a high volume of general surgery cases in our program and residents begin operating day 1. You will be exposed to simple and complex cases in all of the sub-specialties and engage in a robust didactic program. We have a simulation program run by Dr. Fishfeld from our core faculty, including training in FLS and FEC and robotics exposure. We have a multifaceted wellness program led by Dr. Sticco one of our core faculty members. Our Associate Program Director, Dr. Andaz is our research director and we have our residents writing peer reviewed papers and present at local, regional and national conferences. Our chairman Dr. Datta is intimately involved in our teaching program as a busy surgeon and in his regularly scheduled teaching sessions. We have an ACS level 2 trauma program run by Dr. Grewal along with a closed surgical ICU. We have very busy programs in colorectal surgery, surgical oncology, thoracic oncology, bariatrics, head and neck, breast, melanoma, vascular and acute care surgery.

For transplant and complex hepatobiliary we partner with Mount Sinai and residents spend a month at the main campus in Manhattan for a rich experience. We partner with Cohen’s Children’s Hospital for a wonderful experience in pediatric surgery.

We are excited about our hospital’s formal affiliation with Mount Sinai and our program’s sponsoring from the Icahn School of Medicine.

Ultimately we invite you to share our passion for the field of Surgery and despite where you ultimately receive your training, you get out of it exactly what you put into it. Good luck to you.

Sincerely,
Eric David Seitelman, MD, FACS
