PHYSICIAN PROFILE

Dr Weinstein has been in Private Practice as a General Surgeon since 1998. He is a native of New York, but moved down to Florida to be closer to his family after completing his surgical residency at The Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York. He has a variety of interests in General Surgery.

Dr Weinstein is very involved in Diseases of the Breast. He performs his own minimally invasive breast biopsies using ultrasound and mammographic techniques. He works closely with his patients in the treatment options for breast cancer. Another area of interest is treatment of diseases of the Thyroid and Parathyroid gland, both benign and malignant.

Dr Weinstein has always had an interest in hernia surgery. He is very experienced in both open and advanced laparoscopic techniques for hernia repair. Robotic surgery is relatively new in the field of General Surgery. Dr Weinstein has performed over 300 robotic cases for gallbladder, hernia repair, as well as GastroEsophageal reflux and Hiatal hernia repair. He is one of only a few surgeons in South Florida who performs this procedure both laparoscopically and robotically.
