Dr. Rajiv Datta Named a “Top Doctor” in Colon and Rectal Surgery for 6th Consecutive Year
Under Dr. Datta’s leadership, the Gertrude & Louis Feil Cancer Center has evolved into one of the Northeast corridor’s premiere providers of compassionate advanced cancer care.
“My successes and the quality of the care my patients receive is a direct result of the team of oncologists, nurses, technicians, and administrators that I work and collaborate with on a daily basis here at South Nassau,” said Dr. Datta, chair of the department of surgery and medical director of the Gertrude & Louis Feil Cancer Center at South Nassau Communities Hospital.
Under Dr. Datta’s leadership, the Gertrude & Louis Feil Cancer Center has evolved into one of the Northeast corridor’s premiere providers of compassionate advanced cancer care. The center is the only one on Long Island that is equipped with three of the most advanced and effective technologies used to treat and eradicate cancer: the Varian Novalis Tx™, da Vinci® Surgical System and Gamma Knife® Perfexion.
Dr. Datta is listed in the “Colon and Rectal Surgery” section of the Castle Connolly guide.
Dr. Datta’s areas of expertise include cancer of the colon/rectum, endocrine system, breast and head and neck; soft tissue sarcoma and melanoma; upper gastrointestinal and colorectal procedures; tracheal and esophageal surgeries and radio frequency ablation for liver tumors.
Dr. Datta’s exceptional skills are evidenced by his education and recognition in the field of surgery: he has the unusual distinction of holding three fellowships, as a fellow of the prestigious International College of Surgeons, the American College of Surgeons and the Royal College of Surgeons.
South Nassau Communities Hospital is one of the region’s largest hospitals, with 435 beds, more than 900 physicians and 3,000 employees.
