General Surgery

Michael Marin, MD, Chairman of the Department of Surgery at Mount Sinai, and Celia Divino, MD, FACS, Chief of the Division of General Surgery and Professor of Surgery, are strong supporters of global surgical service.

Under their leadership, all senior surgical residents have participated in a month-long surgical rotation in the Dominican Republic, and a number of Mount Sinai surgeons and anesthesiologists have traveled to underserved communities overseas to perform surgeries that would not otherwise be available. Drs. Marin and Divino plan to continue their global surgical efforts under the auspices of the Initiative.
