About Me

Dr. Dolan is a board certified and fellowship trained surgeon who received his Doctor of Medicine degree from the University of Virginia. He then completed a general surgery residency at Weill-Cornell Medical Center-New York Presbyterian Hospital in New York City. During this time, he also spent two years obtaining a master’s degree from the Weill-Cornell Graduate School of Medical Sciences in Clinical Epidemiology and Health Services Research. After completing his seven-year general surgery training he completed a one-year fellowship at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in Advanced GI, Minimally Invasive Surgery, Bariatrics, and Robotic Surgery.

His research interests include disparities in access to weight loss surgery, and he has published a paper titled “Assessment of Public Attitudes Toward Weight Loss Surgery in the United States” in JAMA Surgery. His main clinical focus is using the most advanced minimally invasive and robotic techniques for a variety of abdominal surgeries including hernias and bariatrics. When it comes to weight loss surgery, he is a strong believer in a multi-disciplinary approach for which surgery is an important piece, along with exercise and nutrition.
