A Top Colon and Rectal Surgeon in Dallas, TX

Dr. Stewart Whitney earned his medical degree from Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas followed by his general surgery residency at the Icahn School of Medicine at The Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City. He completed his colon and rectal surgery fellowship training at the Cleveland Clinic in Florida. His time at Mount Sinai, where Dr. Crohn first described Crohn’s disease, and Cleveland Clinic Florida provided extensive experience with the surgical management of Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, which drew him to the field of colon and rectal surgery.

He also performs screening, diagnostic and therapeutic colonoscopies with the removal of polyps.
