Dennis Fowler

Dennis L. Fowler is the Vice President and Medical Director for Perioperative Services at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center. He is a pioneer in the field of endoscopic surgery and has been the first to perform numerous innovative laparoscopic surgical procedures, never before accomplished (NYP). Fowler was also the first general surgeon to use the Harmonic Scalpel (NY Magazine), a device that uses wave frequency (instead of electrical current) to divide the tissue and vibration to coagulate blood vessels (Outpatient Surgery Magazine).
