The north campus also is home to the prestigious Nalitt Institute for Cancer and Blood-Related Diseases, which was New York State's very first freestanding ambulatory cancer care facility, and remains an innovator with leading-edge research protocols and a compassionate, caring ethic. Other vital north site locales include the multi-specialty Irving R.

Additional Information

The hospital's Level 3 Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is a highly respected service that supports the successful birth of as many as 500 babies annually -- children born under high-risk conditions, those born following fertility treatments, and babies born to older mothers. Directed by Philip Roth, M.D., the Neonatal ICU is well equipped to handle even the most difficult cases and provides services to infants up to 30 days old. Our perinatal mortality rate is far below the national average. As a result, we won the Premier Award for Quality for Maternal and Neo-natal Care.

The Department's Maternal/Fetal Medicine Service, directed by James Ducey, M.D., earned accreditation by the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine for its excellence in diagnostic ultrasound. Measuring standards in personnel, physical facility, policies and procedures and quality assurance, the national organization awarded the department accreditation for three years.

Because today, one in every five pregnancies is high risk, the Department strongly emphasizes comprehensive pre-natal care. Learning of a potential problem before birth can help doctors plan on prompt and optimal treatment after the child has been born.

Product and Services

There are two primary principles utilized in obesity surgery to effect weight loss. These are restriction and malabsorption. Restrictive procedures decrease the effective size of the stomach resulting in a feeling of fullness after a much smaller intake of food. Malabsorptive procedures decrease the absorptive efficiency of the intestine resulting in decreased absorption of food (calories) eaten. Procedures may utilize one or both of these principles.

The SIUH Center offers three different surgical procedures for the treatment of morbid obesity. These are: Gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, and Lap-Band®. Though individual procedures are associated with different specific weight-loss outcomes, all provide significant weight loss within 12-24 months following procedure. Most times, this weight loss is sustained over the long term.

Though generally safe and effective, bariatric procedures involve major abdominal surgery and are associated with a variety of possible post-procedural complications. Development of a clear understanding of the nature of the planned procedure, as well as its potential complications, is essential to every patient prior to deciding to proceed with surgery.

Pregnant women and children may be treated through the Program. The hospital and its physicians will respect the woman's, the patients' or the patient’s legal guardian's choice to refuse treatment with blood and blood products, to the fullest extent possible.

Pursuant to New York State law, however, University Hospital and its physicians cannot guarantee that we will not use blood under all circumstances when treating children and pregnant women.
