National Leader in Colon and Rectal Cancer Surgery Joins Stony Brook

11/24/2004


Stony Brook University Hospital has recruited another expert in colon and rectal cancer surgery with the addition of Marvin L. Corman, MD, a nationally known surgeon and author of a book on the topic that is considered by many as the gold standard in its field. As Professor of Surgery, Division of Surgical Oncology, Dr Corman will center on management of diseases of the small bowel, colon, rectum and anus, including colon, rectal and anal cancer.

By joining surgeons Martin S. Karpeh, MD, Chief, Division of Surgical Oncology, and David Rivadeneira, MD, Assistant Professor, Division of Surgical Oncology, Dr Corman places the Long Island Cancer Center in the first rank of excellence in the curative treatment of gastrointestinal cancers. This surgical team uses minimally invasive laparascopic surgery for some colon cancer patients and employs sphincter-saving surgical methods when possible.

In October 2004, the fifth edition of Dr Cormanís textbook, Colon and Rectal Surgery, was published. The book is an instructional, up-to-date guide on the diagnosis and treatment of all disorders affecting the anus, rectum and colon. Dr Corman has served as president of the American Board of Colon and Rectal Surgery, and he is regional vice president of the International Society of University Colon and Rectal Surgeons. Most recently he was Vice Chairman of Surgery and attending colon and rectal surgeon at North Shore-Long Island Jewish Medical Center in New Hyde Park, as well as Professor of Surgery at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York.
