As newer technology and surgical techniques and concepts are being introduced, substantial confusion and dissenting opinions have come into fray as well. Naturally, different practice patterns emerged in Asia, Western Europe as well as in the USA. In this special article, we focus on the right colon and examine the unique challenges and oddities of practicing academic colorectal surgery in the New York metropolitan area.


KEY WORDS: Colon - New York - Malpractice - Lymph node excision
