Vivian E. Strong, a minimally invasive surgery specialist, talks about walking her patients through the steps of the treatment process to ease any concerns before a procedure.


I am a board-certified surgeon with advanced training in minimally invasive techniques (laparoscopy and robotic surgery). I am dedicated to applying my technical expertise and clinical interests primarily to patients with stomach (gastric) cancer and adrenal tumors.

I am a member of Memorial Sloan Kettering’s Gastric Disease Management Team — a multidisciplinary team of surgeons, medical oncologists, pathologists, and other medical professionals who specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of gastric cancer. The combined expertise of our specialized team allows us to come up with the best plan for each patient.
