About Piotr J. Gorecki, M.D.

Dr. Piotr Jerzy Gorecki is a graduate from Nicholas Copernicus Academy of Medicine at Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Poland, one of the oldest and most recognized medical schools and universities in Europe. Following his residency training at the New York Methodist Hospital, he completed Fellowship in Minimally Invasive Surgery at the Mayo Clinic. Serving as a Chief of Advanced Laparoscopy and Section Chief of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery since 2001, he has introduced and developed a minimally invasive program for advanced GI/ Foregut, colorectal, solid organ and most notably the minimally invasive metabolic and bariatric surgery with accreditation at the American College of Surgeons / MBSAQIP as a Comprehensive Weight Loss Center with Adolescent Qualification.Clinical PracticeInspired by long-standing interest in Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) and followed by completion of MIS fellowship at the Mayo Clinic, my clinical activities and expertise have been focused around advancing laparoscopic techniques and minimally invasive approaches to disease of the foregut, solid organs, emergency laparoscopy and most noticeably – laparoscopy for morbid obesity and obesity surgery for adolescents.Furthermore, our minimally invasive metabolic and bariatric practice was awarded as an ASMBS Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence in 2005 (currently combined with American College of Surgeons (ACS) and with Adolescent Qualifications under ACS MBSAQIP / Quality Improvement Project. Our program has been one of the initial metabolic and bariatric centers of excellence in the tri-state area. Indeed, bariatric surgery for adolescents including long-term outcomes and modification of operative techniques has been my long-standing interest that resulted in establishing regional multidisciplinary metabolic and bariatric surgery center of excellence with adolescent designation. Moreover, system-based practice and value based surgical methods utilizing hand-sewn anastomotic techniques resulted not only in major cost savings to our institution but also in reduction of use of disposable instrumentation and reduction of medical waste, while further optimizing and enhancing highest quality patient care.To advance our clinical and research activities I have initiated, organized and maintained a prospectively collected bariatric database while maintaining busy clinical practice and surgical education to our surgical residents, medical students, PA students and GI fellows.Clinical Leadership Serving as a Chief of Advanced Laparoscopy and Section Chief of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery since 2001, I have introduced and developed a minimally invasive program for advanced GI/ Foregut, colorectal, solid organ and most notably the minimally invasive metabolic and bariatric surgery with accreditation at the ACS MBSAQIP center.At the NYP Brooklyn Methodist Hospital, I have performed more than 3900 laparoscopic foregut and bariatric operations since the inception of the advanced MIS program in 2001 with the fortune of not experiencing any perioperative mortality and enjoying high patient satisfaction and an excellent safety profile for our clinical activities. These outcomes were reported at regional, national and international meetings (including SAGES, ASMBS, ACS, IFSO, DDW, NYSS, WCS) and more than 75 papers/abstracts were presented further contributing to the growing national and international recognition of our Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Program at the NYP Brooklyn Methodist Hospital.
