About Progressive Surgical Care

Progressive Surgical Care is a premier surgical practice that specializes in colorectal, laparoscopic, and robotic surgery with multiple offices  in the New York area located in:

  • New Hyde Park
  • Howard Beach
  • Forest Hills
  • Flushing

Progressive Surgical Care provides top-of-the-line surgical services to patients from all five boroughs of New York City and the surrounding communities.

Operating since 1999 and led by Marc E. Sher, MD, FACS, FASCRS, and T. Cristina Sardinha, MD, FACS, FASCRS, the surgeons at Progressive Surgical Care are all board-certified and highly respected doctors who have reputations for providing exceptional care with a warm and compassionate bedside manner. The practice has both male and female surgeons on staff who are fluent in Portuguese, Spanish, Cantonese, Hebrew, Tagalog, and English.

The state-of-the-art offices at Progressive Surgical Care are accredited ambulatory surgery facilities that offer anesthesia and a wide range of in-office procedures including colonoscopies. For any procedures that can’t be performed in office, the practice offers safe and comfortable care at their affiliates, St. Francis Hospital in Flower Hill of Roslyn, New York, and all Northwell Health facilities, including the Long Island Jewish Medical Center in Queens and North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset.

Progressive Surgical Care believes in putting the patient first. The team is always available, even after hours, and consistently responds to messages the same day. Patients who call the practice always get to speak with a doctor and are rarely put on hold or subjected to a series of phone transfers.

At Progressive Surgical Care, patients are treated like family: with dignity, respect, and compassion.

“Our patients are family!” (Dr. Marc E. Sher)
