Gynecologic Oncology Surgery
Eli Serur, M.D., Division Chief
Richmond University Medical Center’s Gynecologic Oncology Surgical Program operates as a regional referral center for both gynecologic oncology as well as pelvic reconstructive surgeries, attracting patients from throughout Staten Island, Brooklyn and New Jersey. The center has one of the highest volumes of gynecologic oncology and gynecologic surgery in the Northeast, with Dr. Eli Serur as the Division Chief.
Dr. Serur is a well-known gynecologic oncology surgeon with specific expertise in minimally invasive surgery. When appropriate, patients can have surgery as an ambulatory patient, leaving the same day as the procedure or with a brief overnight stay. Minimally invasive means the use of specialized operating equipment that allows the surgeon to operate through small incisions in strategic locations, rather than a full-size incision. This promotes patient safety with less recovery time and less chance of infection. Woman can return to their daily routines with work and family quicker than from a traditional open surgery.
