Our Practice

At Overlook Surgical Associates, we believe that the delivery of health care is centered on high quality and individualized attention to detail combined with a compassionate, respectful atmosphere.

Our clinical practice is conveniently located at Overlook Medical Center campus, where Dr. Starker is chairman of the department of surgery. In addition, he is clinical professor of surgery through our affiliation with the Columbia University surgical training program.

During his 13 year tenure as chairman at Overlook, Dr. Starker has strived to promote quality in our operating rooms. The Division of General Surgery at Overlook Medical Center is a member of two national databases, National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (NSQIP) and University Health Consortium (UHC). We have consistently been ranked as national leaders in surgical outcomes.

Dr. Starker believes that the delivery of health care is centered on high quality and individualized attention to detail combined with a compassionate, respectful atmosphere. He focuses his practice on surgical procedures on the organs of the intra-abdominal gastrointestinal tract (stomach, small and large intestine, spleen and pancreas), biliary surgery (gallbladder and bile ducts) and hernia repair (both routine groin hernia and complex abdominal wall construction). His concentration on these procedures allows him to remain up to date on all the latest innovations and techniques.
