- Dr. Inabnet is an international authority in the field of minimally invasive endocrine and laparoscopic surgery. He has pioneered new techniques in minimal access endocrine neck surgery as well as adrenal and pancreatic surgery. Dr. Inabnet is also a leader in the field of minimally invasive bariatric surgery with a keen interest in disorders of the endocrine system in obese patients, especially type 2 diabetes. Prior to returning to the Department of Surgery at Mount Sinai, Dr. Inabnet served as the Chief of Endocrine Surgery and Co-Director of the Thyroid Center, at the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Columbia University in New York City. He received his medical degree as well as his bachelors at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Dr. Inabnet completed a 5 year residency in general surgery with Dr. Richard Prinz at Rush Medical College and Rush-Presbyterian-St. Luke’s Medical Center in Chicago, Illinois. He then fulfilled a fellowship in endocrine surgery at Cochin Hospital in Paris, France where he trained under Professor Yves Chapuis, who was a pioneer in minimally invasive parathyroid, thyroid and adrenal surgery. Dr. Inabnet is a co-investigator for 1 of only 6 U.S. medical centers to receive a multimillion dollar National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant to study the utility of bariatric surgery for patients over a 5 year period (the Longitudinal Assessment of Bariatric Surgery). He recently launched a fully funded multicenter, randomized controlled trial comparing optimal medical therapy to gastric bypass in type 2 diabetic patients with moderate obesity (BMI<35). Dr. Inabnet has authored more than 130 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters, as well as 3 textbooks, including the recently released book Endocrine Surgery: Principles and Practice. He lectures throughout the world and was recently inducted into the Society of University Surgeons as well as the French National Academy of Surgery, a rare honor for a non-French surgeon. The Division merges endocrine surgery with laparoscopy and minimally invasive surgery through the common link of metabolism. Dr. Inabnet oversees the multidisciplinary thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal program development at Mount Sinai.

Minimally invasive adrenal surgeryA comparison of laparoscopic transabdominal and retroperitoneal approaches.
Minimally invasive thyroid and parathyroid surgeryVideo-endoscopic techniques, robotics, the use of local anesthesia, nerve monitoring, voice preservation and intra-operative PTH monitoring.
Metabolic surgery for diabetesRandomized 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.
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.
