Biography

    Dr William B. Inabnet, III, is the Chairman of the Department of Surgery at Mount Sinai Beth Israel; The Eugene W. Friedman, MD, Professor of Surgery and the Surgical Director of the Diabetes, Obesity and Metabolism Institute at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. He is also the inaugural Director of Endocrine Surgery Quality for the Mount Sinai Health System. Dr Inabnet attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where he received his undergraduate and medical school education. He completed his residency in general surgery with Dr Richard Prinz at Rush Medical College and Rush-Presbyterian-St Luke’s Medical Center in Chicago, IL. Dr Inabnet then completed a fellowship in endocrine surgery at Cochin Hospital in Paris, France where he trained under Professor Yves Chapuis, a world leader in the field of endocrine surgery and targeted parathyroidectomy. An international authority in the field of minimally invasive endocrine surgery, Dr Inabnet has pioneered new techniques in minimal access endocrine neck surgery as well as adrenal and pancreatic surgery. In 1998, he helped perform the first endoscopic thyroid resection in the United States and has helped advance the field of video-endoscopic neck surgery. Dr Inabnet is also a leader in the field of minimally invasive metabolic surgery with an interest in disorders of the endocrine system in obese patients, especially Type 2 diabetes and malignancy. Dr Inabnet has participated in national and international clinical trials evaluating the role of gastrointestinal surgery in treating diabetes. He holds numerous leadership positions in the American Association of Endocrine Surgeons, American Association of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery, the American College of Surgeons and the American Thyroid Association. Dr Inabnet has authored more than 160 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters, and 5 textbooks. He lectures throughout the world and was inducted into the Southern Surgical Association, the American Surgical Association, the French National Academy of Surgery and the French Academy of Medicine, becoming only the 4th US surgeon to achieve this honor.

Research

Metabolic surgery for diabetes

Randomized clinical trial in type 2 diabetic patients with class 1 obesity (BMI<35) comparing best medical therapy to laparoscopic gastric bypass.  Other novel procedure development is also under investigation.  Multiple animal models are also being used to investigate the role of metabolic surgery in treating type 2 diabetes.

Minimally invasive thyroid and parathyroid surgery

Video-endoscopic techniques, robotics, the use of local anesthesia, nerve monitoring, voice preservation and intra-operative PTH monitoring.

Industry Relationships

Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.

Dr. Inabnet III did not report having any of the following types of financial relationships with industry during 2015 and/or 2016: consulting, scientific advisory board, industry-sponsored lectures, service on Board of Directors, participation on industry-sponsored committees, equity ownership valued at greater than 5% of a publicly traded company or any value in a privately held company. Please note that this information may differ from information posted on corporate sites due to timing or classification differences.

Mount Sinai's faculty policies relating to faculty collaboration with industry are posted on our website. Patients may wish to ask their physician about the activities they perform for companies.
