Media Releases

Get to know General and Colorectal Surgeon Dr. Daniel A. Popowich, who serves patients in New York.

Dr. Popowich is double board-certified in the fields of general and colorectal surgery. Regardless of the disease process in these two fields, Dr. Popowich’s primary focus is treating patients using the most advanced, minimally invasive techniques. His motivation is to create the smallest incisions possible which would lead to the least amount of pain possible and the fastest recovery possible. These techniques include but are not limited to laparoscopic surgery, single incision laparoscopic surgery, robotic surgery, and transanal minimally invasive surgery. 

Dr. Popowich began his medical training in Philadelphia. Where in 2003, he earned his medical degree from Jefferson Medical College graduating cum laude. He then went on to complete his residency in General Surgery at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago, Illinois in 2010. This was followed immediately by his fellowship in Colorectal Surgery at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York NY, which he completed in 2011. Dr. Popowich worked as an assistant professor of surgery at Tufts Medical Center in Boston Ma. from 2011 to 2013. He then returned to Mt. Sinai Hospital where he worked from 2013 to 2019.

Currently, Dr. Popowich serves as the Chief of Colon and Rectal Surgery at St. Francis Hospital, The Heart Center in Roslyn, New York. It is New York’s only specialty designated cardiac center and offers one of the leading cardiac care programs in the nation. In January 2020, St. Francis Hospital scored a 5-star rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid. St. Francis is one of only three hospitals in the New York City metro area to receive the prestigious rating and the first and only one on Long Island to do so. A little known secret is that their Gastroenterology Department and Colon and Rectal Surgery department provide unparalleled world-class care on par with the Heart Center.

Within the field of Colorectal Surgery, Dr. Popowich has expertise in the fields of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s disease), Colon and Rectal Cancer, Diverticulitis, Constipation, Fecal Incontinence, Hemorrhoids, Fissures, Abscess and Fistula, Condyloma, etc.

Within the field of General Surgery, Dr. Popowich treats patients with Gallbladder Disease and Hernia (from basic groin hernias to complex abdominal wall reconstruction). 

Again, his focus in treating all of his patients is to perform surgeries as minimally invasive as possible. Very commonly, his patients leave the hospital without the need for narcotic pain medication and are back to work faster than previously thought possible.

A Fellow of the American College of Surgeons and a Fellow of the American Society of Colorectal Surgeons, he is board-certified in general surgery by the American Board of Surgery (ABS). The ABS is an independent, non-profit organization located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, founded for the purpose of certifying surgeons who have met a defined standard of education, training, and knowledge.

Additionally, Dr. Popowich is board-certified in colorectal surgery by the American Board of Colon and Rectal Surgery, a member of the American Board of Medical Specialties that issues certificates for practitioners of colorectal surgery. The board was established in 1934 as the American Board of Proctology.

For the purpose of advancing his professional development, he remains a member of the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons, the American College of Surgeons, and the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons amongst other local, national and international societies. 

Among his many accolades in the fields of general surgery and colorectal surgery, Dr. Popowich has written over 20 peer-reviewed manuscripts and several book chapters involving colon and rectal cancer, inflammatory bowel diseases, and various techniques in minimally invasive surgery. He also frequently lectures and teaches on a local, national, and international level. He most recently was one of three Editors of the SAGES Manual of Colorectal Surgery published by Springer in early 2020. This textbook is considered to be the new authority on Minimally Invasive Colorectal Surgery techniques.
