Dr. Messina performs a number of bariatric surgery procedures in Mt. Kisco, NY: laparoscopic adjustable gastric band, laparoscopic gastric bypass, sleeve gastrectomy, and duodenal switch.
Dr. Messina’s expertise also includes a wide range of general surgeries, such as breast cancer, hernia repair, gallbladder removal, and colon surgeries, most of which are performed laparoscopically. “Laparoscopic surgery allows for a faster recovery with less pain which means a quicker return to normal activities,” Dr. Messina notes. “The smaller incisions also produces better cosmetic results.” A member of the Mount Kisco multi-specialty practice since completing her General Surgery residency at NYU Medical Center, Dr. Messina’s training also included undergraduate work at Dartmouth College and medical education at Temple University School of Medicine.
