Posting ads for 8 years
Dr. Blumberg's pioneering work was reported in the journals Surgical Innovations in September 2008 and Surgical Laparoscopic, Endoscopic and Percutaneous Techniques in February and June of this year. Dr. Blumberg demonstrates in these peer-reviewed publications the safety of this new technique and shows that the technique is widely applicable to patients with colon cancer and colon polyps. Furthermore he demonstrates that the colon resection surgery that he performs is equally safe and successful for patients with obesity and patients having had prior abdominal surgery. These two groups of patients are usually not considered candidates for a laparoscopic colon operation for safety reasons. Dr. Blumberg showed that his laparoscopic colon surgery technique allows patients with obesity and prior abdominal surgery to have a similar success rate with similar high rates (95-98%) of completing the operation laparoscopically and similar low complication rates and quick recovery.
Dr. Blumberg asserts that the public has clearly been concerned about the safety of laparoscopic colon surgery (laparoscopic colectomy) as suggested by a publication in August 2009 in the journal Surgery that indicates that only 4% of all elective colon operations performed in the United States today are performed laparoscopically. In choosing a colon cancer treatment specialist he recommends the following guidelines to patients: choose a doctor who is a board certified expert in colon cancer, choose a doctor at a University Program, choose a doctor who practices within a National Cancer Institute sponsored Cancer Center to gain assess to a team of colon cancer specialists, know your doctors credentials and make sure he has a proven track record in laparoscopic colon resection surgery. Dr. Blumberg has practiced at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and its affiliate Hillman Cancer Center for the past ten years. He is board certified in colon and rectal surgery and also received specialty training in cancer surgery at the world renowned Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York. Dr. Blumberg is recognized as a national expert in the area of colon and rectal cancer and laparoscopic colon surgery. He has written over 40 articles and has lectured at multiple national meetings. His pioneering work in laparoscopic colon surgery was initially brought to media attention with television interviews in 2004. He was acclaimed by his peers as one of Pittsburgh's Top Doctors in 2007 and 2008.
