Biography

Michael J. Menack, MD is a board certified, and highly experienced fellowship trained General/Laparoscopic Surgeon in a private group practice in Central New Jersey. He is primarily focused on minimally invasive surgery, surgical oncology and he performs complex advanced laparoscopic procedures and colorectal surgery including non-painful hemorrhoid treatments. He has been instrumental in introducing a wide range of advanced minimally invasive procedures to the hospitals in which he has worked, and continues to ?push the envelope in terms of the use of new technologies and novel approaches to problems in the field of General and Minimally Invasive Surgery. His greatest satisfaction occurs when patients undergoing these minimally invasive procedures, have such a dramatic improvement in their postoperative recovery as compared to traditional open surgical techniques. Minimally invasive and painless non-surgical hemorrhoid treatment with the CRH/O'Reagan banding system is now available for all hemorrhoid types. A relatively painless new approach to more difficult hemorrhoid cases is also offered using the transanal hemorrhoidal dearterialzation (THD) device, an operative procedure that is equally if not more effective that a traditional painful hemorrhoidectomy.Dr. Menack is active in the American College of Surgeons as a member of the Ultrasound National Faculty and Imaging Group and an instructor for the American College of Surgeons Intraoperative Ultrasound Course. He has published peer reviewed articles on the use of laparoscopic ultrasound of the biliary tree and pancreas. He serves as a member of the editorial board of the peer reviewed journal Surgical Laparoscopy, Endoscopy and Percutaneous Techniques. Dr. Menack is a former Assistant Professor of Surgery and attending surgeon at Weill Medical College, Cornell University, and former Moses Site Director : Third Year Medical Student Clerkship, and attending surgeon at Montefiore Medical Center, Albert Einstein College of Medicine. He presently serves as the Director of the Central Jersey Wound and Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment Center at CentraState Medical Center.
