The Sternberg Clinic


The Sternberg Clinic

After many years performing major abdominal operations including open and laparoscopic resections for colon cancer, rectal cancer, Crohn’s disease, and Ulcerative colitis, I have chosen to concentrate my efforts in a few highly specialized areas of surgery where I feel I can make the greatest positive impact on patients. These areas include office-based consultations, treatments and outpatient surgery:

  • Pilonidal disease
  • Anorectal disorders including hemorrhoids, abscess/fistula, and fissure
  • Colonoscopy
  • Other same-day surgical or office-based procedures


Why am I doing this?

I enjoy the relationships that I have with my patients. Listening to patients and understanding his/her concerns and expectations is the critical step in making an accurate diagnosis and developing the best plan of action.

I like to solve difficult problems and have the knowledge and technical skill to do so.

Surgery is often one of several options, and sometimes not the best one. I always am thoughtful and explore non-surgical approaches with my patients when appropriate.

I consider the long-term consequences of any treatment and will always discuss the pros and cons of a procedure with you.
