Dr. James B Piper has the following 1 specialty
- Transplant Surgery
Transplant surgeons are trained to transplant organs from donors, whether living or deceased, to the patients in need. This includes liver, lung, heart, intestine, pancreas and kidney transplants as well as tissue, bone marrow and cornea transplants. Kidney disease, diabetes, cystic fibrosis and serious infections are just a few reasons you might need a transplant.
Your surgeon will consult with you prior to the operation for a pre-transplant evaluation and they will see you through your healing process to ensure you have no complications. Some surgeons get additional training and education on pediatric transplants to provide special care to children.

At age 67 I was diagnosed with stage with colon cancer by Dr Peter Varunok in Dutchess County, who quickly sent me to Westchester Medical Center. Dr Savino operated on my colon tumor and saw my liver compromised with 3 additional tumors. Not much hope was given but to try everything and still have a 70% chance of cancer returning within 5 years. God sent me Dr. Piper who performed my surgery and cut over 50% of my liver. Then I followed 1 1/2 year of chemotherapy. I am now 86 years and cancer free. Dr Piper took care of me like no other. He cared, was always ensuring I was being tested and vigilant to my condition. I could not thank him enough for giving me my life back. At that time I did not know I was in the hands of the one of the best surgeons in the country, highly respected in the medical field and the accuracy of his treatment with me is what allows me to write this review today. I thank God for putting me in his hands. His staff and other professionals were outstanding and for me who could not communicate in English, it was paramount. I have given my daughter my review in Spanish and asked her to translate it and place it here. Thank you Dr. Piper!! I was given a second opportunity in life.
I see Dr. Piper for a cyst in my liver. He answer all my questions and took his time to explaining when I need to be worried. He definitely ease my worries.He has the knowledge and experience and he is very caring. I haven't met any other Dr. like him so far. Go and see for yourself. You will be glad that you read this review.
I was referred to Dr. Piper by another surgeon who felt that Dr. Piper would be able to resolve my issues due to complications brought on by acute pancreatitis. Dr. Piper explained the procedure thoroughly to myself and my wife. He also offered a solution (TPN) to my inability to eat and process food due to ongoing pancreatitis symptoms. After 7 weeks of TPN therapy Dr. Piper successfully performed surgery to reduce/eliminate a pancreatic pseudocyst. I immediately felt better even taking into account the post surgery pain. Dr. Piper's bedside manner is outstanding. He kept me involved in the entire process. I will not hesitate to give Dr. Piper the highest recommendation possible.
